All students at Loveland Early Childhood Center (LECC), Loveland Primary School (LPS) and Loveland Elementary School (LES) enjoyed a cup of school-grown garden veggies with lunch Friday, Sept. 26. It was the annual Harvest Lunch celebration – courtesy Granny’s Garden.
“This year’s lunch was again a great success for the students,” said Kris Tracy, district food service coordinator. “The food service staff and the volunteers from Granny's Garden are to be commended for the countless hours of harvesting, washing, cutting and preparing the vegetables. Each year brings a new harvest of at least one unique vegetable to use. This year it was Kohlrabi, which is a type of cabbage.”
Granny’s Garden School is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that collaborates with the Loveland City School District to offer hands-on learning opportunities for more than 1,600 first - fourth grade students through the 24-acre Loveland School Garden.
