    BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

    I helped with a cooking class to teach children at the school how to make a heathy vegetarian meal. We made a huge locally sourced kale salad with pear, sunflower-seeds, cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette. We also made collard greens and onion and garlic Frittatas. The kids also learned about planting seeds and growing process as well as learning about seasonal and locally grown produce. I helped the children with their activities at the cooking station. gwfoodprints@gmail.com :Off campus service

    In Denver, CO I help plant romaine, baby spinach, and kale in vertical towers to grow. I also helped place seeds in the starting soil to grow and then be put in the vertical towers. Vertical farming is very clean for the human and for the environment. There is no waste and very very little environmental impact, that being watering. This is an off campus impact.

    We shoveled a patch of already up routed soil for there to be more planting beds built. We did this at the Francis-Stevens, a school in West End for a program called Foodprints that works in the school and in the garden to educate kids on gardening, cooking and eating. This is such a cool organization. This is an off-campus volunteer hours. The volunteer coordinator: gwfoodprints@gmail.com
