Fresh Basil, Silver beet and Hazelnut Pesto

TERM 4 has brought some much appreciated sunshine to our increasing sustainable, organic garden - with an exciting bump of new Spring produce to harvest for kitchen. Vegetables available include sprouting broccoli, spring onions, leeks, snow peas, peas, sugar snaps, broad beans, lemons, Cos lettuce, cabbage, beetroot, mint, parsley and the incredibly verstile, resident green; both positively nutritious and deliciously leafy guessed it! Silver beet!!

I absolutely love the Spring Season! Ignoring the obvious warmer weather and sunny highlights, its honestly my favourite time to explore and harvest from our garden. Its plenyful and fragrant after the school holidays - with flowering plants and sweet green vegetables everywhere you look! Planning the weekly menu is inspiring with so many exciting choice! Spring indulges my passion to create new fresh dishes that are both healthy and achievable to cook with our Year 4 & 6 students and parents.

Chicken Run: Our happy flock of hens continue to scratch, potter and hum freely throughout the orchard yard and  cuby house home, laying a generous supply of quality, organic eggs daily! Its terrific to see so many of our students' from across the different Year levels take up an active role in the everyday care of our girls! Students are enthusiastic to collect and date eggs, provide food & water or simply stop by the straw enclosure to say hi and give those willing a gentle hand stroke.
