Farm to Fork

This week in my school is a week of Intensives. Basically we have none of our regular classes for a whole week, twice a year, and we are placed in learning about one thing the whole week. As for example I was placed in a Blogging Intensive, that’s why I created this blog! There were other intensives such as “Women Warriors” where girls are learning about their body, self-defense and relationships, also “Knit and Crochet for Change” where students are taught to knit or crochet scarfs and donating them to a charity, and many more. But the only one that will make sense for me to blog about is the intensive called “Farm to Fork” (hence the title). This is a week long intensive where they learn where their food comes from and get to visit a garden. They realized how efficient it is to have your own garden because it saves more money and you’ll have the vegetables or fruits available.

I was able to go visit them today, take some pictures, talk to the students and see what they were making. I felt like a paparazzi 😀

Some dishes they were making were Potato Pancakes, Vegetable Dumplings, Mini Lasagna and last but not least Empanadas. I was able to get pictures of all the students because they are “camera shy”. Here’s a few.

 I was told by some students that they had fun in this intensive and some were even thinking of being chefs! That is so awesome to hear!! Sadly enough I wasn’t able to taste any food but it smelled amazing!! 😀
