NEXT WEEK: Grass Valley Elementary's Makers will be hosting their own farmer's market on Wednesday, May 31st!

As part of our Maker Ed/Project Based Learning program, students spent the last few weeks answering the driving question: "How do we share our knowledge of health and wellness with others by producing, packaging, and marketing a product for a farmer's market?"

Check out their takes on healthy Rice Krispies treats, fruit popsicles, trail mix, meditative tealight candles, quinoa pizza bites, and more. All items are $3 or less, and proceeds go to each class's non-profit of choice.

We'd love for you to stop by and/or spread the word!
