Growing Goodness

Students from both FlexSchool campuses rolled up their sleeves for a FlexFriday volunteer day at the Pleasantville Community Garden, which grows fresh, nutritious food for donation to local food pantries – an important component of a crucial food supply that might otherwise only include nonperishable and canned foods.
There was much to do, but many hands made light work of weeding and preparing the planting beds, moving compost and planting two varieties of potatoes. 

This day was especially meaningful for us because Bronxville students had prepared those new planting beds for the garden last fall, but our plans to return for planting last spring were delayed to Covid-19.  We were so happy to finally have the opportunity to finish what we started!
