Now that the garden is beginning to produce delicious and healthy greens, the students of Home School Nosara are working hard in developing their business in our Spanish Program. Together they are putting their creative minds in action and experimented with their first herbal infused water recipes. They began with sampling the taste, texture and smell of our Vive Verde Garden’s different herbs and playing with their own recipes. After setting them out in Costa Rica’s natural energy source to blend the flavors they had a blast test tasting each other’s concoctions in class. Suggestions were shared in evaluating the first trial and the kids are excited to bottle their first refreshing blend of ideas and herbs.
This week they will research the health benefits of the different herbs to invite the interest of future customers along with the help of a local graphic artist, who will be coming in to help the kids develop their final logo crafted from their sketches. And in the meantime, students will continue to produce new ideas for our business venture to sell in our community to maintain and grow our sustainable and organic garden.
