The garden in front of the First Presbyterian Church on Academy Street in Cold Spring will again produce a bountiful array of fresh local food — thanks to the hard work of Brownie Troop 1605. The Cold Spring troop is made up of 20 Haldane second graders, and 14 of the troop members dug in and got their hands dirty on Tuesday (May 19).

The young gardeners planted tomatoes, peppers, kale, cucumbers, beans, Swiss chard, herbs, flowers and more. First planted by Tess Duhl four years ago as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award, the garden has become an annual project. This year’s crop will again provide nutritious food to clients of the Philipstown Food Pantry. Troop 1605 is led by Carolyn Llewellyn and Jennifer Gilleo.
