After only three weeks, the first harvest from the new Agricultural Technology gardens was cooked into a spinach pie. Beetroot leaves, a variety of herbs and marigold flowers were added for flavour and decoration.
Harvest is a lovely way to experience the blessing of fresh vegetables and children enjoyed eating silverbeet straight from the ground. We thinned the radish seedlings and enjoyed eating their sprouts, too. The garden is blossoming with the warm weather and dedication of the students. The alyssum in the display garden is in full bloom and has a delicious perfume.
We are very excited about getting the chicken coop going in Term 2 so that our next quiche can be made from Covie-grown eggs. Mr Rusin joined the students for their first taste testing of their work. Well done, Dr Gates and students. Thanks for sharing.
