Clinton School Farmers Market

Clinton's Farmers' Market

 

It was another sunny day for the 2nd annual Clinton School Farmers Market! Produce from Alstede Farms and Trader Joe’s were displayed proudly on our front lawn.  Students 'shopped' for produce and each child brought three items home.  Some Clinton students were lucky enough to benefit from an outdoor still life class, drawing the fruit and vegetables, lead by our outstanding art teacher Ms. Tischio.  All extra produce was distributed through the school social work department to our Clinton families who are more challenged economically.

 

Clinton’s farmers market generated interest even inside the school.  Children watched in-classroom videos on farming and took part in important conversations around farming, sustainability, and healthy eatingWe declare the farmers market an unequivocal success and we look forward to having more events like this in the future.
