December Harvest

Check out our December harvest at Casa da Criança Jesus Pequenino preschool in Petrolina, Brazil.  Fifteen children in the Pre-II class and their teachers gathered a bountiful crop of beets, cabbage and coriander. The vegetables were washed and stored in the kitchen to supplement the school’s meals. The kids enjoyed getting their hands dirty in the Crescer Saudavel garden and were very excited about tasting their harvest. Turns out that the children of Casa da Criança Jesus Pequenino love beets!
