Community Support is How We Grow

It’s a fact that our school garden wouldn’t exist without the help of the incredible community members of Westminster. Above are Bianca and Mike Zaransky who, together with their son, sixth grader, Van have contributed many hours to our garden. Last week they came over after work to till the garden in preparation for Westminster Center School Planting Day, this Monday, June 1st from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. We’re so very lucky to have these young farmers supporting us. Come and join us for Planting Day!

This summer each teacher has adopted a crop to care for with my help and with the help of interested parents. We’re looking forward to a great growing season.

I have been an elementary teacher at the Westminster Center School for 30 years. For most of those years, I maintained a garden as part of my teaching curriculum resource. Now I am the Garden Coordinator for all of the Westminster Center School classrooms.
