Lunchtime and snacks are an essential part of our day. The food we eat nourishes our bodies, while the communal time provides crucial social interaction and plenty of learning opportunities.
Growing & Preparing Our Own Food
At the Homestead, our students not only eat together — they learn how to grow highly-nutritious food in our organic gardens, collect eggs, and help raise dairy goats. Each classroom building is equipped with a kitchen to prepare fresh snacks or entire meals together. Even our youngest students learn in preschool to prepare snacks as part of their practical life studies, serve them to their peers, and clean up after themselves.
