We had the pleasure of helping students (forty in all) from Williams Elementary School decorate cookies with the residents at Mattoon Healthcare Center. After all their hard work everyone enjoyed eating the awesome homemade cookies. It was such a great day!
Such an amazing educator! As soon as she left the day care at Broadway Christian church today having read to the students, Mavis then heads with me to the Fellowship Center where she teaches about the need to cultivate in the garden! I love working with this woman!
Today we had such a good time learning about all the neat projects that are going on in Mr. Karl Rabe's agriculture classes (aka ag) at Mattoon High School. Our time with him ended with a tour of the greenhouse and the aquaponics system! We are excited to begin partnering with the FFA chapter at MHS and two early childhood centers on two additional mircogardens in the city of Mattoon!
I am just getting started at Fit-2-Serve and have been a part of two Community Connect gatherings. What a wonderful way to meet new people and learn about so many good things happening in our area! I invite everyone to please come out and join us!
We were blessed to work with Williams Elementary School and plant our first school garden! Pumpkins galore were the result as we worked alongside Mrs. Molly Masulis 2nd grade class and look forward to continuing the partnership in 2016!
