Two Edison Elementary students (and kiddos of four RB staff) work hard to build a Tasting Stand at the school's latest garden work party. The Tasting Stand is being constructed through a City of Eugene Neighborhoods Matching Grant.
RB architect, Lorri Nelson is also an instructor with the UO Service Learning Program through the College of Education where she co-teaches "The Schoolhouse Garden at Edison Elementary School" class. This class brings UO students together with Edison Elementary teachers, students, and families to build and grow a garden. Students learn about food justice, nutrition, and sustainability practices.
The Tasting Stand is like a farm stand, where UO students serve harvested fruits and veggies from the school garden to kids in the garden. Yumm!
