Our November Theme:
Season of Thanks and Giving
Thanksgiving is a national holiday founded on giving and gratitude. From the very first Thanksgiving, to the one we celebrate this month, one tradition still holds true: sharing the bounty of nature and our kitchens brings people together, and there are examples of giving and gratitude from past to present. We will practice ways of saying thanks and being kind this month, and extend throughout the year.
This month, we also learn what “farm-to-table” is all about. Fall harvest yields vegetables, fruits and grains from the garden, and as it gets colder, farmers prepare for their animals to survive the winter. How do we grind the wheat to make flour for bread? How is butter and applesauce made?
Near the end of the month, we will hold our annual POW-WOWs to celebrate friendship by giving gifts we have made, and showing gratitude.
