The Garrison Union Free School marked Earth Day on April 22 by planting a vegetable garden on the school grounds with students from kindergarten through fifth grade taking part. Nicole Porto, a garden educator with Hudson Valley Seed, which is partnering with GUFS on the project, told The Current that the garden will yield a bountiful variety of produce including potatoes, carrots, lettuce, beans, tomatoes, peppers and zucchini.

Porto said the project can use some additional help, especially when it comes to watering the fledgling garden this summer. Anyone interested in lending a hand should email Porto at [email protected].
