The Navigators baked apple pies to donate      
The Navigators baked pies to donate to The Samaritan House (Tim's place), Martha's Kitchen, and Laurie's House on Friday. They also gifted one pie to Team USA to thank a small group of their students for helping out. The students did this pie baking activity as a culmination of their study of apples, which began with a trip to Hackett's apple orchard. The students wanted the pies to go to "people who didn't get the chance to go apple picking or may not have a place to cook."   Friday 10-14-2016

Apple Cider Making -It is that time of year again.
A truck load of apples have been gathered at Shelburne Orchards and will be pressed into cider on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please feel free to stop out with your classes to see the process and enjoy a sample of fresh hot cider. This will be taking place in front of the HOPE Classroom - across from the big white garage.


For Snacks Today we have Granny Smith Apples
Granny Smith apples originated in Australia in 1868 when Maria Ann (Granny) Smith found a seedling growing by a creek on her property. This was the same place where she would toss French crab apples grown in Tasmania. The seedling bore light-green-colored apples that Granny Smith propagated. She found the new apple to be great for both cooking and snacking.

Washington apple growers began growing this apple commercially in the late 1960s. Today, Granny Smith is one of the most well-known apple varieties around, known for its bright green color and tart flavor.

Students may take two fruit servings with each meal. They must take at least one.
