Spring Internship
Snapshot: Chew on this!

Harvesting our first crop of the year, brought right to the kitchen, and turned into a tasty afternoon snack...Spanikopita! (Savory Greek spinach pie pastry).

This week's icebreaker was the "Human Knot." Always super fun, and doubles as a metaphor to be used in the financial literacy workshop below on what "debt" feels like (when everyone gets tangled all tight)!

This workshop is one that the crew really digs in deep and asks all kinds of questions.  We cover credit, debt, banking, credit cards, short and long term financial goals, budgeting to achieve those goals, the Golden Rule of Money ("Don't spend more than you make"), retirement planning and investing.

And of course a little celebratory kitchen dancing and singing in honor of all the wonderful Mothers out there this weekend!

After harvesting citrus, digging beds, sifting compost...and spending sweet time with the baby goats...we jumped into the kitchen to make oat bran pumpkin muffins and super tasty smoothies with last year's youth-grown berries!  Awww yeah--

With gratitude,
Doron
