Very proud to be a part of this great school The Palmas Academy. I was amazed to see the process from the beginning of the “Sofrito” made straight from our garden. The students from elementary school worked together in different groups from picking the crops, to cleaning, sorting and cutting every item. Later on they went to our Culinary classroom to start the process of production, mixing and blending everything. Students from first grade to 6th grade, all working as a team. The pictures will prove it!
