Peppers! Cilantro! Potatoes! Oh My!

By Sara Langworthy, Judy Myers, and Nora Fox

Despite a rainy, chilly evening, and initial uncertainty from early arrivals, it didn’t take long for an electric buzz to fill the Bruce Vento Elementary School cafeteria on Thursday evening, May 14. Over 200 people including families, children, community members, and school staff gathered to share great food, abundant conversation, and opinions about what should grow in the Bruce Vento school and community garden this summer.

“How many of you want to plant this vegetable in your school garden?” asked Marnita Shroedl of Marnita’s Table while holding up bright red and yellow bell peppers.
