Scenes from the Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club - June 18

 

 

20 kids participated in the first Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club of the season. 

 

 

The kids went on a scavenger hunt through the market, tried cucumber smoothies, and earned Cleve Cook Bucks to shop for fresh produce at the market.

 

 

All participants got to plant a seed to take home to grow their own veggies.
