Pinkerton Elementary Garden Harvest October 23, 2019

This week students and teachers at Coppell ISD Pinkerton Elementary school harvested their first batch of green vegetables supplied as transplants from the Coppell Community Garden greenhouse. The harvest was taken to the school’s kitchen. There the greens were made into kale smoothies for the students.

Coppell ISD is participating in a federal program designed to encourage students to grow and consume fresh vegetables to learn more about healthy eating and locally sourced fresh food. The Coppell Community Garden progam supports Coppell ISD gardens in a number of ways, one of which is supplying transplants from it’s greenhouse to be planted at the school gardens in support of this program.
