Team Of Strategic Partners Help Teach Local Students About Historic Local Food Production

The team from Inland Empire Youth 4 Today planned a field trip for the students from the environmental team at Dollahan Elementary. The environmental team is a club at the school that is responsible teaching students to care for the earth and keep their school clean. The leadership of the group Inland Empire Youth 4 Today told Rialto Now that they have watched opportunities for inner city youth to attend field trips and learn by more than just tests and white boards drop dramatically so they looked for another way to get the students learning from outside the classroom.

The perfect opportunity made its self available when the family of the last historic Orange Grove in the city of Rialto decided to sell off a major portion of the farm to a developer seeking to develop high end condos. “We didn’t want this grove to leave without impressing young minds with the historical importance of this Orange Orchard” said the groups PR person. John Adams the family member that owns the property now has said that his plans were to maximize space and grow an abundance of product and variety of fruit.

The students and parents were able to learn about Mulberries and taste them. They also tasted Peaches and Oranges straight off the tree. Students learned about a Banana that they grow there that tastes like Vanilla Ice Cream and a plant that grew fruit that tasted like Root-beer. The students also learned about grafting a growing technique that is used to grow new trees off of other trees.

Mrs. Valencia the school club adviser said that “there is no better taste than fruit right off the tree” everyone had a great time and they learned so much about Local Farming and the science that goes behind it. Inland Empire Youth 4 Today said that they have tried to get local leaders to do more for local youth but the people in power refuse to help the children of the Inland Empire unless it lines the pockets of the politicians friends pockets.

Happy Saint Patricks Day

Hello everyone its that time of year we look forward to eating and drinking things that are green.

If your not sure where to hang out this O-GREEN-DAY here are some ideas:

l

Ye Olde Lamplighter in San Bernardino was highlighted on “The Fork Report” with Neil Sevedra on KFI yesterday afternoon where they promised a atmosphere of fun, drink and food. They estimated they would sell over 100 pounds of Corned Beef and Cabbage.

They are located at 255 E 40th St  San Bernardino, CA 92404 (909) 886-4490

Hangar 24

We’re toasting to St. Patrick this week, and enjoying the beautiful spring weather too.  Starting Wednesday, and leading up to St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, we’ll have special events and food on the Hangar 24 Patio.

Frequent Flyers enjoy double miles on Monday, and Frequent Flyer Lottery on Tuesday- with every swipe of your Frequent Flyer card you can win stickers, 1 liter growlers, and sweatshirts.

Wednesday Night Live Music on the Hangar 24 Patio will definitely get you in the mood to celebrate like the Irish.

DEALS & STEALS

Sonic Drive-In is having a special St. Patrick’s Day Double Play.  Visit them on March 17th and order all your Sonic favs.  Then bring the pink receipt back to Sonic any day in March and receive all the food for FREE!

Free fries at Burger King this weekend served with Heinz St. Paddy’s Sauce (it’s green)!  Thanks to Dine 909 for the tip!

For the families, John’s Incredible Pizza Co. is celebrating by giving everyone a $5 FunCard to use between 3/19-4/15/12.  All you have to do is eat at their buffet and wear green from 3/16-3/18.

RIVERSIDE & REDLANDS

The Salted Pig has all day specials including Jameson Irish Whiskey and $5 draft beers (while they last).  They’ve got a Green Flash Double Stout that sounds like it could be delicious!

Smokey Canyon BBQ in Riverside is the place for southern cooking but, you know what they say, everybody’s Irish on St. Paddy’s Day!  They’ll be serving the Irish favorites like corned beef and cabbage.  Expect live music and green beer!  Festivities start at 11:30 a.m.

They say the Tartan of Redlands has the best corned beef in the IE.  Taste for yourself on Saturday starting at 11 a.m. and stay through the evening and enjoy some bagpipes.

Mill Creek Cattle Co. has an all you can eat buffet featuring the St. Patty’s Day staples like corned beef and cabbage – and of course green beer.

Head to Kiddoughs Bakery-n Coffee House for an Irish car-bomb brewcake…try not to drool.
