On Sunday, the D.C. Farm to School Network and the P Street and Georgetown Whole Foods Market joined forces to host an interactive tent at the Jazz on the National Mall event to engage children and adults about garden herbs! Kids had the opportunity to touch, smell, and see herb plants that were on display. We talked to kids about different herbs and how they can be used in healthy recipes. They got to draw pictures of their favorite herbs on a chalkboard. We also sent them home with bags of seeds already in soil to grow their own herbs at home!
A special thanks to Whole Foods for making the beautiful herbs and foods poster and for helping to make the event possible. Thanks to Stan and Nicole Schermerhorn of A Thyme to Plant for their generous donation of beautiful herbs plants. And thanks to America the Beautiful Fund for their donation of herb seeds that we gave away to interested kids and adults!
