This March, Chesnut Charter Elementary School’s 4th and 5th grade Ecology Club members harvested collard greens, clearing all the decaying plant parts to the compost pile. The students divided their harvest into bags to which they attached a hand-written “coconut collard greens” recipe for delivery to their teachers.

- One bunch greens (like collards, kale, swiss chard, cabbage, bok choi)
