As part of our Farm to School Cooking Program, Chef Adam Hayes has been bringing a little bit of the Red Stag Grill at the Grand Bohemian Hotel to Glen Arden Elementary School each month.
Earlier this year, ASAP’s Growing Minds program was able to award several mini-grants to school gardens in Western North Carolina thanks to funding from Roots Organic Gourmet. As the weather warms and spring gardens start to flourish, we’ve started getting some fantastic photos and stories from the teachers who received the grants.
On Tuesday, April 9th, ASAP’s Growing Minds program hosted area produce distributors and institutional food buyers at a meet and greet at Yesterday Spaces on Gaining Ground Farm. Why? So they could talk local food, of course!
Glen Arden second graders celebrated the first day of spring with a visit from Chef Adam Hayes of the Red Stag Grill.
Kindergartners at Hall Fletcher Elementary in Asheville enjoyed a special treat when Chef William Dissen from the Market Place restaurant led them in making garden fresh pizzas on an early spring day.
Students at Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School in Henderson County, NC, celebrated Get Local @ School apple month this February by inviting Chef Matthew Linebeck from Season’s Restaurant at Highland Lake Inn to come and teach them how to make delicious apple recipes.
