Taken from the Santa Cruz Sentinel Article “County students dig in at ‘Strawberry Blast””:
Nearly 100 students from across the county traveled to the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden Friday to learn about the social benefits and epicurean delights of fresh, organic and locally grown food.
Santa Cruz City school kids make smoothies with strawberries they just picked from field at UCSC’s Farm project.
And, of course, to enjoy a delicious strawberry smoothie.
The Strawberry Blast, organized by “Food What?,” part of the nonprofit Life Lab Science Program aimed at youth, and the Santa Cruz City Schools Wellness Committee, allowed the students to harvest their own berries, make smoothies and learn about the process that brings food from farm to table.
