Last Week of Lincoln Summer Program

July 27, 2015

Friday was the last day of the summer program at Lincoln Community School. We were lucky to have Laura Collaro join us the last week of the program to teach a cooking workshop. The menu was designed around vegetables grown in our very own garden, as well as other fruits and vegetables that are in season this time of year. Some of the recipes included Chilled Blueberry Soup, Kale Pesto, Tomato Sauce, and Homemade Chamomile Tea. The students helped harvest the ingredients, prepare the recipes, and sample their creations!

Along with cooking the recipes, students also collected the recipes to take home. At the beginning of the week, students created their own recipe book which they bound and decorated themselves. Each day they added to the book the recipes which they made that day, accompanied by an illustration. At the end of the week they had a complete book of recipes to take home and share with their families.  Students also drew and painted pictures of the ingredients, which will be on display at LCS in the fall.


This workshop was a great way to celebrate the bounty from the garden while spending meaningful time with friends and teachers. Thank you to all the families who supported this new and growing summer program at LCS!
