Potatoes harvested for school fair

The leaves are falling, the crops are in and that means harvest dishes and baked goods cooking in the oven.

Crestomere School recently had its Potato Pumpkin Harvest Fair that brought in community members with harvest dishes of their own, to sample potato dishes made by each of the classes.

The potatoes where planted in May and harvested by the students late September. “Junior high was paired with little kids. We just took an afternoon and dug them,” said event organizer Kathy Bogath.

The harvest yielded six five-gallon pails of potatoes, which were distributed among the classes. As a class they had to decide what kind of dish they wanted to make.

“It’s just like a big potluck,” said Bogath. “And then they each had an area, what harvest is like to them.”

“The grades 1 and 2 class decorated around their table with a Field of Dreams theme. It symbolizes their growing journey with knowledge and growing in the garden, said Bogath. “It’s a good metaphor.”

The fair also featured a slideshow of the students digging the potatoes and a photo booth complete with harvest themed costumes.
