Whirlpool Cave


We went on a guided tour with the City Watershed Dept. Here is us 49ft. under ground with 6th grade students in the wild Whirpool Cave located within walking distance of Small.

Winter Health Tonic

Mr. Brooks Farm to Table class did a fermentation lab where the students made  a homemade immune boosting "fire cider" The recipe was found online and is pretty straight forward and easy to make at home and can be very beneficial for staying healthy in this cold/flu season.


Recipe, per quart:
-1 medium yellow onion, diced-4-5 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped-3-4 tbsp fresh grated horseradish-3-4 tbsp fresh grated ginger root-Raw unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar - Enough to fill the jar & submerge the other ingredients.
-Turmeric, for extra antioxidants and inflammation-fighting. We used equal amounts to the ginger/horseradish. If you can't get fresh, you could add powder.
-A couple sprigs of lemon grass or other fresh herbs. Many recipes incorporate rosemary, thyme, or oregano. We will add more fresh herbs next time!
-Hot chilis, to keep your blood moving and sinuses open! We used 3 serrano jalapenos per half gallon.
-Black pepper, especially when using turmeric, as it vastly increases the curcumin bioavailability. A pinch of peppercorns or few dashes of ground pepper to each jar.
-Citrus, for vitamin C. We used 2 lemons, 1 orange, 1/2 grapefruit per half gallon. You can juice and zest them, or just slice and throw in whole. We did the latter, removing the grapefruit rind to save space.
