Vermont School Garden

A visit to a Vermont public school garden through the seasons.

Youth Services Help Maintain our Summer Garden

Leave a comment

boys weedingWe had an awesome crew of boys from Youth Services to help us keep the garden weed- free this summer. Squash, tomatoes, cucumbers and kale were harvested for the school summer lunch program. The boys brought their own special brand of energy and humor with them and they got a lot done under the direction of their crew leader, Weston. At the end of their summer work, they learned how to make pickles using our garden produce and they cooled off (it was a very HOT summer) with raspberry kale smoothies. We hope they’ll come back to visit the garden.
