Episode 19: Sion’s Schoolyard Garden


We take some time to visit the beautiful schoolyard garden at Kansas City’s Notre Dame de Sion in the Hyde Park neighborhood. This is a quick look at some the busy activities that the garden creates. From food education, to the lunch program and probably more than any of that, to the joy that a schoolyard garden can deliver, for the kids, their families and the teachers too.


Thanks, Laurie and Mike

Episode 18: Refrigerator Pickles


The peak of the summer is upon us and the cucumbers are producing more than we can eat. So, why not preserve some for later? A batch of refrigerator pickles will capture summer in a jar. Much less mess and effort than canning but they are called refrigerator pickles for a reason. A simple and quick solution to, too many cucumbers.

Thanks for taking a look.
