Crux: Agricultural Stewards
Did you know that soil contains a healthy bacteria that increases levels of serotonin and reduces anxiety? No wonder why gardening makes us so dang happy! Last week Professional Chef, Eduardo Garcia, and owner of the national food brand, Montana Mex invited a group of participants to his food forest for a full day of education. Participants learned about sustainable agriculture, and how to make a delicious organic meal from farm to table. Thank you Eduardo, and Montana Mex for the hospitality and overall inspiring afternoon.
The Learning Garden Project
The rest of our 11th-grade crew had their hands in the soil at the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. This summer BYEP was presented with a unique opportunity to tend to and take care of 8 garden beds in the Story Mill Park. Over the course of the next 6 weeks groups will take turns working on the gardens; weeding, watering, pruning, and harvesting with the intent of providing fresh produce to the community.
