Tip # 30: Create a Farmer's Market Bouquet

Giving a bouquet of fresh farmer's market goodies is a fun, healthy, and creative way of showing your appreciation. Head down to your local farmer's market, pick some fresh fruits and veggies, and package them up with a cute card saying "I couldn’t have PICKED ... a better teacher!"

Students: If you want to impress your teacher even more, talk to them about your lunch room's carbon footprint. Help develop some healthy recipes that will not only start greening your school cafeteria, but will also save the school some money (which means more field trips for you!).
