It's Farm to Preschool Day!!

October is Farm to School Month! The national organization is hoping to highlight all kinds of things happening across the country to connect kids, schools and locally grown food throughout the month. Today also just happens to be Farm to Preschool Day (!!!) so I wanted to share these great photos (by BCS Toddler Teacher Sheila P.) of BCS kids harvesting beautiful carrots from their plots at the Archibald Community Garden, just down the street from our center.

We are so lucky to be connected with Grow Team One, and the Friends of Burlington Gardens!

We celebrate our connection to our local farms just about every day, thanks to the Intervale Food Hub, and their amazing work to get gleaned organic produce into the hands of local kids through programs like ours.

Thank you Intervale farmers, and everyone involved with this awesome initiative!
