For The Express

LOGANTON — The tradition of making sauerkraut each Fall Season has deep roots in our local area where food preservation is a common practice. Combining a simple process with inexpensive ingredients and a lot of elbow grease yields the students at the Sugar Valley Rural Charter School great results!

Carl Bechdel and Robbie Weaver, leaders of the school’s FFA organization, oversee students who wash and cut cabbage, and then “stomp” the cabbage by hand. A visit to the school reveals students who are eager to learn and share the traditional process, and with a great sense of personal accomplishment and school pride.
