Summer Learning Academy students harvest vegetables from Cooke's garden

July 30, 2015

Students from the Summer Learning Academy helped to harvest radishes that grew in the Cooke School Garden. While they were working, they learned that radishes are a root vegetable. The vegetables are donated to the Federation for the Homeless in Monticello where they are used to make meals for those in need.

Also growing in the garden are milk weed plants. Milk weed is the natural food of the monarch butterfly. It was planted in an effort to help the monarch population thrive.
