a journal of our edible education


One of our garden’s most generous partners is Kevin Fonzo, chef and owner of K restaurant in College Park.  Kevin and his award winning menu have certainly helped to make Orlando Junior Academy a delicious place to learn.  From guiding the development of our lunch program to teaching in our kitchen lab, Kevin has been more than just an inspiration to the students here.  Whenever possible our students like to give back something that Kevin can use in his kitchen.  Last September the seventh grade class planted, from seed, a variety of celery called “Red Venture”.  They have watched the celery develop and start to show its signature red stalks.  When Kevin said he could use some fresh celery for a few of his menu items we were happy to share.  Look for “OJA Celery” on the menu this weekend at “K” and pass along our gratitude for all that Kevin does for his community.
