These FoodCorps garden educators aren't sticking their tongues out at you! They're showing off their "garden candy" … edible borage flowers they're about to eat. (Have you ever tried them? They taste like cucumber! Pinch the flower gently to pull it away from its fuzzy base.)
This was one of many fun and engaging lessons for gardening with kids that Life Lab leaders Whitney Cohen and John Fisher shared at a three-day national training for FoodCorps members in Oregon. August was full of workshops as the new school year begins: Life Lab provided professional development for more than 300 educators whose work influences the lives of over 120,000 children!
