Haldane has recently broken ground for their new sustainable garden which will have teaching plots from first grade to middle school. There are plans for next summer to possibly open this up as a community garden. Here are some volunteers prepping the property in anticipation for when the backhoe and roto-tiller comes in to prep the raised beds. In addition to the teaching bed there will also be native plant beds and a butterfly garden. The Philipstown Garden Club contributed a donation of funds raised from their recent plant sale to help kick-off this new garden. Pictures courtesy of Beth Sigler.
