The Summer CSA Season Begins Today!

Reminder to Families who Purchased a CSA Share: Your share will be available for pickup today, on the patio of the school after 3:30 pm. If you will not be able to collect your share in person, feel free to send a friend!

The Summer Session is officially here! Summer Session at Bloom! Montessori means many things: warmer temperatures, summer BBQs, the ability to work out on the patio, camping trips, field trips, and the beginning of our Farm to School Program!

During the summer, we partner with Ollin Farms, a local, organic, family-owned farm, to bring our students fresh, seasonal, local produce. The children have the opportunity to visit the farm to see how food is cultivated and to develop a relationship with a local farmer; additionally, we use their produce for snacks at the school and in practical life lessons (traditional Montessori lessons in which children engage in simple, independent, food preparation activities to facilitate their care of the self).

In addition, parents had the opportunity to purchase community supported agriculture shares from the farm. These shares are available for pick up at the school every Monday after 3:30 beginning today.
