Earlier this month, Anna and Eli set up our Veggie Grand Prix at the Minneapolis Public Schools BBQ, One of our favorite events of the year! We asked Children of all ages to name that vegetable before racing them down the speedway. With the help of a few eager 3rd graders, we built googly-eyed roadsters from common veggies like potato and zucchini and trickier ones like ginger and golden beets. We had veggie themed prizes for everyone! Families enjoyed delicious farm-to-table food, care of the MPS culinary program, with recipes created by their partners at local restaurants like Birchwood Cafe and Sen Yai Sen Lek. Well done, Minneapolis Public School's, for hosting a wonderful community event!
