Shortbread Cookies awarded, Best "Marin Made" Cookie
Our local paper, The Marin Independent Journal, awarded our shortbread cookies, Best "Marin Made" Cookies. They were baked from the wheat grown and milled at the Bayside/MLK Jr. Academy (a local public school). I'm teaching the children how to grow, harvest, clean, mill and, best of all, bake with heirloom whole-wheat flour. The children's reactions inspire me. For example, they shouted with joy at the discovery that grains of wheat become flour through the process of milling.
