DSC_0221Chef in the Garden is an annual fall event held at our ESY Flagship schools to encourage students to celebrate and enjoy the harvest season in their school gardens.  Inviting local guest chefs to the garden space to cook with students adds another level of excitement – helping fresh food become a delicious, positive experience.  For more info on the event, click here.
