At Gary A. Knox Elementary School, every grade level has a chance to get their hands dirty for the sake of science. For most of the school year, agricultural science teacher Ann Ogram and her students have been devotedly tending to their “Garden of Learning,” where over 60 beds of fresh produce are ready for harvest.
Today from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again on Jan. 15, Ogram and her students are hosting their annual farmer’s market, and they’re inviting the community to come get a taste of the fruit (or greens and vegetables, rather) of their labor.
They’ll be set up outside the school, located at 2926 S. 21st Drive, with large brown bags full of an assortment of organically-grown broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, beets, carrots, cilantro, frisee, kale, spinach, green leaf and iceberg lettuce and romaine. For $10, market-goers can take their own bag home to enjoy.
