Serving-up Florida UF Peaches!

Watch our PES Garden Grow!   

Peach tree blooms Fresh & Juicy North Florida Peaches were all the rave at lunch this week! Our school received the lovely fresh peaches as a “Farm to School”  district wide initiative to help promote health, wellness & nutrition.  In honor of this event our kiddos got to plant our very first stone fruit tree the “Tropical Snow Peach”.  This particular peach is from the University of Florida AG center and specially “grafted” to grow in our climate. Students gathered about the garden  to take turns digging the hole, adding rich compost and watering our peach tree to grow in its new home! We all can’t wait for May of 2017 to harvest our first batch!
