PASS THE VEGGIES PLEASE: Toward a Plant-Strong Diet

Course No. ED466f, ED566f

These days as the sun wanes, the industrial growing season is becoming shorter, which means each of us will be wanting to supplement our meals with more veggies. But how to begin? A decent place to start is by knowing what seasonal veggies to add to your daily meals. When you have a better idea as to what will sustain you, what you might buy from the local farmers markets, the local grocery or grow in your own garden or community garden with neighbors, then your meals will not only be more colorful but also more energizing. Learn more about plants and how they help us boost our energy. Support well being at your school and at home when you Pass the Veggies, Please.
