SEASIDE® Neighborhood School welcomes local restaurateurs, farmers By Wendy O. Dixon

As part of Seaside Neighborhood School’s Emeril Lagasse Culinary Garden and Teaching Kitchen program, Renee Pitchford’s seventh grade English Language Arts students researched what it means to be a locavore, a person who eats most of their foods from local sources. They researched the environmental, economic and nutritional impacts of cutting down “food miles” and finding local sources for their foods.

The class was visited by Dave Rauschkolb, owner of Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant in Seaside, and Phil McDonald with Black Bear Bread Company in Grayton Beach, Melissa Register with Register Family Farms, and Mikeal of the Greensman Garden, who taught the students about some of the local foods that are grown in Walton County.
