2019 Spring Dates

 

Kids Market Day 

Our Kid-grown, kid-sold market will be held this year on Saturday, March 23, 2019.

This farmers market will be run entirely by kids and students. Schools will bring lettuce mix, carrots, mustard greens, herbs, kale, and lots of big bountiful chard. St. Catherine's Montessori environemental teachers and their kid market team will sell their hand-made soap and body care products along with their organic produce. The Culinary Club of Energy Institute High School will create a seasonal recipe. All proceeds are sown back into the school gardens and culinary programs to promote experiential learning opportunities for students. 

"The kids are our future stewards and this is important for healthy communities," shared a market customer. explaining why she came out to  support Kids Market Day.
