Making Stock at CMESS

Watch this slide show of volunteers making wholesome chicken and vegetable stock in the local school kitchen for the Tahsis Farm to School program.  Featured local ingredients from Tahsis gardens, as well as the Tahsis Community Garden include local onions, celery, thyme, oregano, bay leaves, and rosemary.

Also on the menu in the new year is potato soup, featuring the 65 lbs of beautiful potatoes from the Farm to School bed in the garden, dug up recently by the grade 4, 5, 6 class.


In the Garden, most of us have put our beds to bed for the winter.  There are still many rows of carrots in the ground, and I know some of us have put in our garlic with our fingers crossed for a good garlic crop next summer.  The herbs are still vibrant and delicious, and at my house we still have a few winter squashes waiting to get roasted for soups.  The chard is still popping up, and the kale is just right.  There are 2 big pumpkins in the school kitchen that one of our highschool students has big plans for, after taking them out of the science class garden bed.



    

The PAC Christmas Bazaar at the school is on December 1st this year, and look for the Tahsis Community Garden Society table.  Information will be there for signing up for next year, and also we have raffle tickets for sale to win some lovley prizes.  An outdoor chair, a Tree to Sea Pottery Bowl, and a mini greenhouse seed starter kit.
