What is your wish for this project?

We wish to show our community that eating local is good for the environment while supporting local farmers in our community. Students learn about growing their own food and eating it year round, but many of our cooking class supplies must be supplemented due to our large population and the size of our school garden. Students hope to create an impact by lessening their carbon emissions by using foods that are more locally sourced.

How did it go?

So far students have located the Farmer's Market and their vendors, mapping out how far each vendor travels to participate. Our next step is to identify a recipe and then map how far each of the ingredients traveled. We will then compare each ingredient to one from the farmer's market.
