Regenerative Farm Field Trip Focuses on Eco-Literacy Studies

Eco-literacy Studies at Anneliese Schools

Our 5th grade students recently visited the school’s regenerative farm, Rebel Mountain in Claremont, as part of their eco-literacy and gardening studies.

While harvesting fruits and vegetables and observing growing practices was on the agenda for the farm field trip, the students also incorporated math and problem solving into their visit.

“The kids were required to scale a recipe to feed the entire class and they had to harvest the volumes of food they found through their recipe conversion,” shares Nourishment Program Director Chef Andrew Johnson. “It was a real-life kitchen math and produce gathering opportunity.”

The class then harvested Swiss chard stems, celery and tricolor carrots to make a vegetable crudite. Chef Andrew led everyone in a cooking class to prepare a pesto utilizing cilantro and pesto and a roasted beet poke salad with Asian-inspired flavors finished with Willowbrook kumquats and seaweed. It was a delicious incorporation of the students’ eco-literacy studies on the farm.
