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.
Thanks to the kids from Southern Lyon County FFA for all the work!
