I have a question. I have been told at a new school I am volunteering at that the school principal will not let the kids eat or take home the apples grown on the school site. Says if anyone gets sick they are liable. I am sure they are grown organically. I have researched and assume I need to call the district to find out. The weird thing is, they have planted fruit trees and grow veggies, and the kids eat the veggies. If they support a school garden, they should be able to eat it too! Does not make sense. I assume maybe we need to educate the principal so she knows this is OK? Any input would be appreciated, including the legalities around this problem. THANK YOU!
