a journal of our edible education

Special Guests

The Edible Schoolyard at OJA had a V.I.P. day this week.  The Honorable Mayor Ken Bradley and his wonderful wife Ruth visited  our campus.  Along with Winter Park’s first couple came STUFF the Magic Dragon, mascot for the Orlando Magic basketball team.  The afternoon began with a student rally in the gymnasium, where the Mission: Fit Possible team from Florida Hospital for Children led everyone in rousing nutrition and exercise lesson.  Afterwards, Mayor and Mrs. Bradley along with STUFF toured the garden and the nutritional science lab, harvesting and tasting along the way.  Our students and staff showed them how a garden and a kitchen can be integral to a child’s education and how healthy food can be fun and delicious.
