After-School All-Stars Garden Club

LAS VEGAS - The Garden Club at C.T. Sewell Elementary, a part of After-School All-Stars is doing more than tending to their school garden, they're also growing healthy, nutritious food enjoyed by students!
 
The garden is packed with veggies: peppers, summer squash, basil, mint, chard, onions, carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, and asparagus grow among lemon, peach, orange, and pomegranate trees.
 
Students are immersed in the process. This is their garden!
 
The school hosted a local Chef for a live cooking demonstration, utilizing fresh produce students have been growing for months.
 
From seedling to their stomachs - with awareness of cultivation, sustainability, wholesome eating; and seeing the Chef working with food they grew
 
The Garden Club meets twice a week through After-School All-Stars, the cooking demo introducing resourceful ways to use fresh ingredients, and teaching rewards of hard work. 
 
Studies show gardening, in addition to being fun, and a source of fresh produce, has a number of health benefits. And some students are already digging in the dirt at home!
 
Current green thumbs, future Chefs, and students learning lifelong lessons in today's "What's Cool at School!"
