I'm highlighting a Kickstarter campaign to build a teaching kitchen -- it's the companion to a school garden that is a leading example in DC. The project is being run by Jennifer Mampara, who I once worked with on another school project. She did cooking demos in a kindergarten class while I took the kids out to a community garden to transplant and grow lettuce. They loved it and one day we all sat down for a big salad lunch with lettuce the kids had grown.
Now, the project at Watkins Elementary is more ambitious, and they have just two days left to reach a $60,000 goal. Can they do it? You may help decide.
