Kelly stated that, “One of Orme’s sustainability missions is to value our resources and use them wisely. Two weekends ago, students harvested prickly pears from around the school campus, being mindful to only take a fair share of the cactus fruit, and to leave the rest behind for wildlife.
Students carefully avoided the painful spiky hairs, called glochids. And, working together to prepare their harvest, students were then able to triumphantly sip and enjoy the fresh prickly pear lemonade they had made.”
