WEEK 4: EAT A RAINBOW

This week we prepped beds, sowed seeds, made veggie fried rice, and learned about the importance of "Eating a Rainbow."

We got our first seeds into the FoodWhat field just in time for the rain. We forked, composted, raked out the beds, and sowed beets and carrots. 

EAT A RAINBOW
We're not just talkin' skittles here, different color fruits and veggies actually help different parts of our bodies. We did a workshop to learn about the nutritional benefits of all the different colors...
Orange fruits and vegetables help our vision and help boost our immune system
After we worked up our appetite, we made Rainbow Veggie Fried Rice (recipe here) with Beets, Carrots, Leeks, Broccoli, Celery, Purple Cabbage, Turnips and Ginger, and Brown Rice. Most of us thought this was our favorite FoodWhat recipe so far!
Mmmmm, good!
