On Thursday, Oct. 25, Mary Hanna’s second grade class from Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta went to the FARMS Kitchen at the Central Lincoln County YMCA. They were the third class to visit and learn about Native American food from Ms. Kleinkopf and Mrs. Miller. They used ingredients that Native Americans in this area might have used, like cornmeal, rice, blueberries, and pumpkin.
Here are some quotes from the students about their afternoon:
“We got to make and eat wild rice with blueberries in it.” — Emma
“I liked that we got to make Three Sisters’ Stew.” — Kyleigh
“I liked the boiled cornmeal.” — Connor
“We had fun cleaning carrots!” — Ella and Lucas
“I loved the rice with blueberries. I ate four servings!” — Finn
“I liked the pumpkin seeds.” — Tristan
“I liked the cornmeal.” — Ben
“We felt helpful in the kitchen.” — Zea
“We had an awesome time making the stew.” — Valorie
“The pumpkin seeds were so good that I could almost scream!” — Peyton
The whole class had an extraordinary time.
