Some of the healthiest and most delicious nutrition classes happen during the summer months at A Living Library, when fruit is ripening on the trees and leafy greens are at their finest. Teachers at the OMI/Excelsior Living Library & Think Park instructed students on how to prepare a salad.
Li shows us how to harvest lettuce
Students harnessed the energy of the sun using a solar oven to roast sunflower seeds for a crunchy salad topping. They whisked their own lemon vinaigrette using lemons from the Lemon Tree in the Lower Garden of the OMI/Excelsior Living Library & Think Park. The summer A.L.L. Eco-Stewards shared their bounty with a younger group of students from San Miguel Early Education School. A good time was had by all!
