On June 10th, in partnership with FoodLink NY, St. Peter’s installed a community garden! All materials and plants garden were generously donated to us by FoodLink as part of a grant to provide healthy food to the community. Since then, we’ve engaged several community volunteers to help water, harvest, weed and keep a vigilant watch for our resident ground hog family!
On August 7, we held a family gardening workshop with 8 kids and 3 adults attending. Local organic farming celebrity Elizabeth Henderson led the workshop by teaching about soil, edible weeds and planting. Each child got a seed packet to take home and plant.
