This recipe combines local apples and local cabbage into a kid-friendly coleslaw. It is perfect for the classroom and does not require a stovetop or oven.

These quesadillas put a local spin on an old favorite. The associated lesson plan includes cabbage facts and activities.


From The Giant Cabbage – An Alaskan Folktale by Cherie B. Stihler, this soup has enough ingredients that everyone in the classroom can have a job cutting vegetables.
