This post is from NCSU student Lindsey Brantley, who is teaching this Power of Eating Right class. Read about last week's class that focused on veggies.
This was our 4th week teaching at the Mayview site. It gets so much better each week! This week we visited the garden, and the students were able to plant spinach and collard greens. All the girls were so willing and excited to be able to contribute to the garden in their community. In light of the gardening, we prepared fresh fruit smoothies and fresh vegetable pizza to help show where the fresh produce comes from. The girls had an amazing time making their own personal pizzas and smoothies. They even asked for seconds!
