The Scattergood Friends School Farm provides Scattergood staff and students with a bounty of delicious produce and meats. Farmers Mark and Dana are hard at work year round (with some help from staff and students) to help nurture our community. Our cooks try to use as much of the harvest throughout the year to provide nutritious and delicious food. Forget everything you thought you knew about school lunch!

It has been a while since I posted, and I hope to catch up. However, I had to get this out there. This May Term, Alex Foster and I taught a class on cooking and consumption. Mostly we talked about fuel sources and how we as a society use them. The gist of it is we built solar ovens, a pit bbq and the final project this cob oven. Also pictured are the first loaves of bread we made. The structure will eventually be covered in adobe and decorated! Thanks to the class for their hard work and for the gifts we will continue to receive from this oven, which Nicole Wolf Camplin gave a tradition Jewish blessing!
