Today here at Seeds to Plate we had an exciting guest come and teach our students about chemistry in a unique way. Chef Clemance Gosett of La Gourmandise Cooking School visited our 8th grade Chemistry classes for a lesson of “Cooking with Chemistry”. The fun and interactive lesson touched upon mechanical reactions, catalysts, and acids/bases. All the while Chef Gosett was demonstrating how to create ricotta cheese and butter to use for a yummy and easy snack!
Last week, students learned about how Sumerians irrigated their crops.

We welcomed once again, Clara from Tutti Frutti Farm in Lompoc. During 6 periods, Clara shared with over 300 students about how they grow and sell a wide variety of vegetables on their 200 acre farm. Tutti Frutti supplies many of Los Angeles' high-end restaurants through the Santa Monica Farmers Market on Wednesday.
How fun! Students work in teams to build their own terrariums.
Using potatoes and yams students create blocks for stamping prints on textiles like they do in Mali.
