We were thrilled to be able to serve our students satsuma tangerines again this fall and early winter! Satsumas are the perfect citrus fruit for students – super easy to peel, juicy and sweet. And they happen to be grow really well in our region. We got ours from the Corbett Brothers’ grove in South Georgia, about 100 miles away. The Corbetts have been farming since the 1970s, and the second generation of Corbetts are managing their farm (and grove) now. They share with us the goal of educating young people about the delicious, nutritious food grown in our region.
The G.E.T. students help care for a few satsuma trees out at the Farm to School Hub and enjoyed harvesting them just before winter break. So good.
