Students in Theresa Formyduval’s Culinary Arts classes are learning about sustainability and “farm to plate” food production. The classes received a $1000 grant from the Sparkleberry Country Fair this year to purchase dehydraters, canners, recipe books, canning tools, and other supplies.  All Culinary Arts students took a jar of strawberry jam home that they made in class to treat their families. Pictured are some of the students who processed strawberries fresh from the farm to make Strawberry Jam.
