    Fall Garden to Table Treats

    G2T staffMy name is Tara Morrison, and I am excited to have joined the Mountaintop Montessori staff as the Garden to Table instructor. My family of six moved to Virginia from Mississippi this summer to be closer to our family. So far, we have loved Virginia (especially all of the outdoor activities it has to offer). 

    My love of food started with my first job in a pizzeria and has gone through many changes since then. My career has included everything from fine dining and private clubs to one of the first locally-sourced restaurants in Charleston, SC.  I have also been involved in the Slow Food Movement since the late 90s when I started volunteering on the first certified organic CSA in South Carolina.  I have since been involved in local food movements from Rhinebeck, NY to New Orleans, LA, most recently in Jackson, MS where I was involved in installing a school garden at Davis Magnet Elementary.  Since having children of my own, I have grown passionate about creating awareness in children of where our food comes from and how it gets to our plates. I also feel very strongly about introducing kids to a wide variety of foods and cooking styles to allow them from a very young age to understand that the world is much bigger that our home, our community, our region, our country.
