My students need dehydrators to take full advantage of the fruits and vegetables that grow in our school's garden and 48 tree orchard!
My students are curious, creative and caring. Whether we are working in the garden or cooking in the classroom, they are always excited to learn and try new things.
I work with students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade and each group of students is unique.
My 6th grade counseling classes are always enthusiastic and full of energy. My 8th grade Personal Development classes are insightful and hard workers.
In our community, the change in seasons is not always a welcome one. Our region struggles with short growing and employment seasons which pose a challenge to our community and families in the district. Many of our students receive free or reduced price lunch and backpack food on the weekend. Despite this, we work hard at our school to create a nourishing learning environment for our students.
At CFJH, we have a half acre garden & orchard that serves students of two schools. About 900 students have the chance to explore and enjoy our outdoor classroom. We grow various edible plants to teach students about nutrition and gardening. Having dehydrators will allow us to enhance our garden program by giving us the opportunity to efficiently harvest and store the food that we grow.
Having dehydrators will allow us to safely preserve produce harvested from our garden for use throughout the school year in many classrooms.
In Family & Consumer Sciences, kids will learn how to make fresh fruit leather. In Garden Club, students will make dehydrated veggie chips using carrots, beets and kale from the garden. In Social Studies classes, students will cook using dehydrated herbs, tomatoes, corn, and beans in cultural units. Hundreds of apples, pears and plums from our experimental cold-zone research orchard will be preserved so students can enjoy them throughout the year!
