Soldotna Montessori students reaped the fruits of nearly a year’s worth of labor, in the form of nearly 2,000 purple, red and yellow potatoes.
More than 320 pairs of hands pulled the thousands of bulbous, hearty tubers from cold garden soil on Sept. 14, in a matter of hours. The generous yield was then prepared and put onto the tables of the school’s families Sept. 18, at the annual Peace Day Harvest potluck.
“So at our school we believe that student-driven ideas are the best way to go about it,” said fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade Montessori teacher Terri Carter.
