Just across the canal from the Ecology Center – and still part of the Green Living Festival – the Kingsley School garden was open for visitors. A mid-afternoon scavenger hunt in the garden was based upon literature that students (but not all adults) would know – the vegetable picked by Peter Piper, and an ingredient used by Harry Potter, as examples.Kingsley parents offered refreshments based on the garden’s harvest of zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and herbs: salsa, tomato sauce, zucchini bread and zucchini-chocolate-chip cookies, said parent Sharon Smaller. “The focus of the garden is to emphasize wellness and healthy food,” she added.
