Sylvia Spivens always said 'no' to spinach. But one day, Sylvia's teacher gives her a packet of spinach seeds to plant for a school garden. What to do? In the garden, Sylvia discovers the joy of growing food from the ground up and finds the pleasure of tasting something new.

Katherine Pryor makes her children's book debut with Sylvia's Spinach. She loves eating spinach sautéed, stir-fried, steamed, or straight from the garden. In addition to her writing, she is also a good food advocate based in Seattle. Katherine manages a statewide program to bring local and sustainable foods in Washington hospitals. Find out more at katherinepryor.com.

This event is co-sponsored by Common Threads Farm, whose mission is to connect young people with healthy food through hands-on, seed-to-table educational experiences. The "Common Thread" throughout their programs is a commitment to food competency, food literacy, food justice, and youth empowerment. Common Threads cultivates all of these through joyful, purposeful cooking and gardening experiences.
