After Months of careful planning, planting, and organizing, the Richmond High Urban Agriculture Class/Club manifested its' first ever lunch time salad bar and lemonade stand. Working together with Richmond High Vice Principle Kibby Kleiman and the Richmond High Cafeteria, our food safe salad bar distributed salad bowls and lemonade to over 80 students and faculty during their Wednesday lunch period. All of the lettuce and lemons used at the stand were grown by the Urban Agriculture Class, at the garden located on campus at Richmond High School! Additionally the students made all of the salad dressings from scratch during class, just before lunch began. Dressings included a non-fat Ranch Dressing made from Greek yogurt, balsamic vinaigrette, and a honey mustard sauce made from organic mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Chalk one up for the power of youth organizing! Stay tuned for more events like this, and remember to GROW YOUR OWN!
