A Day in a Pair: Kumquats and Kindergarteners

by GOOD Partner

November 3, 2012

A Day in a Pair contest winner Bethany Harris scouts out citrus trees in a local nursery.

Before her day began, Harris placed an order for GLOB paint, which is made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices, to donate to the kindergarten class.

Harris starts her day scouring the nursery for the perfect citrus tree to bring to the transitional kindergarteners at ONEgeneration.

Harris grabs her harvesting bags from the Food Forward “fruit mobile.”

Harris gets to work collecting ripe oranges from the tree.

As her harvest bags fill, Harris empties them into boxes. She filled 4.5 boxes with Valencia oranges during her morning.

Harris starts prepping the oranges for the students.

Harris slices the oranges into manageable sizes for the kindergarteners.

Harris takes a test bite as she prepares the Valencia oranges for the students.

Before handing out the sweet treats, Harris talks with students about urban gardening. While talking about planting and gardening, the students raise their hands to answer Harris’s question, “Who has an orange or lemon tree in their backyard?”

Harris poses with the transitional kindergarten class, their neighbor, Charlie, and the kumquat tree at ONEgeneration.
