Lashon Bonaventure here! I’m the GENYOUth Now Ambasador.
Hello everyone. Recently my school had a Garden to Cafe event. The Garden to Cafe is basically when a special cook comes in and cooks up something yummy for everyone. Almost all ingredients came from the school’s garden crops. The librarian reached out to a special division in NYC DOE and got the chef to come because it would a nice treat for the school and for students to be able to taste new and exciting crops we actually planted. Not only everyone who worked hard on the garden with me, but the whole school got to taste test a salad and pesto pasta. It was a chilly day out. We all got to put our jackets and celebrate in the garden. It was also “National Take Your Parent to Lunch Day” and we had several parents come out to show their support for the garden and education. Way to go guys!!! I never knew that gardens and healthy eating build community. The lunch man even came up from the downstairs cafeteria to see what was going on! So I just wanted to inform you about all the special things we are doing here at P.S. 54. And another thing,I need something from you all…… please eat at least 3 fruits a day and remember to eat healthy. Signing off till next time.
