Healthy Kids First: Watch as kids in an elementary school class in Huntington, West Virginia have trouble identifying fresh fruits and vegetables. Huntington has been called the unhealthiest city in America where nearly half of the adults are considered obese. In a day where our children think that meat comes in a shrink-wrapped package from the grocery store, environmental education is of paramount importance. Friends of Boulder Knoll works to involve local people of all ages, abilities, and levels of experience in working with, understanding, and enjoying the land and its natural resources.  We have invited Chef Tim Cipriano, Executive Director of Food Service for the New Haven Public Schools to speak on bringing healthy food from local farms to schoolchildren in Cheshire and New Haven. Can you join us to hear about his efforts and how we can help?
