Turkey Valley Preschool had a great month investigating local melons.

Pictures speak volumes about how the Turkey Valley Preschool children participated and learned about the Farm to Early Care and Education featured food for September – MELONS!

According to preschool teacher, Sara Converse, “We didn’t have to buy a single melon as they came out of family gardens!!!! My mother in law and friends had some of the most delicious ones I’ve ever had!  We tried honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon.  We talked about how melons can be different colors, sorted seeds, charted our favorites and made cantaloupe smoothies for our celebration “.

Thanks Sara for sharing your classroom’s excitement for local melons.
