Men with Fruit!

5.19.14-Cooking-AppleCrisp-Smoothies_IMG_6638Both our male staff members at CommunityGrows were dishing up great food on Monday, May 19, 2014 at two of our sites, Rosa Parks Elementary School and Hayward Rec Center in San Francisco. Adrian Almquist, Garden Programs Manager, led a lesson in making Apple Strawberry Crumble and Ezekiel McCarter, Rosa Parks Garden Assistant, created yummy Fruit Smoothies.
Using some of the fruits from our gardens, the youth helped chop up apples and strawberries for the Crumble and then measure out the ingredients for the crumble topping. A lesson in math and a lesson in creativity (as well as patience).
The Rosa Parks Excel youth finished their work in the garden and retired to the cafeteria where Ezekiel help them make the smoothies. Both classes were rewarded with delicious fruit creations. 5.19.14-Cooking-AppleCrisp-Smoothies_IMG_6594
