Do You Grow Kale?

​If you grow kale you may be interested in the ‘You Heart Kale’ effort promoted by Indiana’s Farm to School program for this year’s Food Day. The “Kale Toolkit”  provided by the Indiana Dept. of Education encourages schools to buy kale from local farmers, plant kale in the school garden, let students taste-test kale recipes, and serve kale in the school cafeteria to celebrate Food Day. Food Day is October 24, but schools can pick any day in October to have their official celebration. The toolkit also includes kale recipes that might be of interest to direct marketers.
