October 2010: Thurgood Marshall Academy hosted the 2010 DC School Garden Week Kickoff, in partnership with Savoy Elementary! Four students were paired with locals chefs to battle for the winning recipe using locally-grown apples. Chef Tee of Station 9 and Malachi Mccaskill won for their apple and cranberry crisp. The students also got some tips from special guests like White House Chef Sam Kass and sampled a variety of apples. Thurgood Marshall Academy’s brand-new school garden, shared with neighboring Savoy Elementary School, was named, dedicated, painted and planted.
