TMA Produce Sale

The TMA Produce Sale, part of the TMA Garden Program, is an after-school event. Held twice a month on Tuesdays in the Star Terrace, the sale provides nutritious snack items that students can purchase for $.50 to $1.00 or a Green Buck (worth $.50) they earn during monthly class garden visits.

Our Garden Volunteers and Produce Sale teams work hard to make snacks and harvest produce for a tasty way to teach farm-to-table and healthy eating concepts. Below are some of our recipes.

If you would like to participate by preparing an item for the next Produce Sale, click on the button to register on our Signup.com page.
