At Nativity Catholic School in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kindergarten classes celebrated National Farm to School Month with an Apple Crunch celebration. While taking a field trip to Tuttle Orchards in Greenfield, the students stopped to crunch into local apples! The field trip included a visit to the pumpkin patch, an apple orchard tour, a nutrition lesson tailored for the kindergartners, and lunch at the orchard.
