Vestal students are working to make our garden grow.

The Student Garden Committee finished construction on the greenspace kiosk under the guidance of Tim Hahn of Learning Gardens Institute. In the coming weeks, students will paint the kiosk and create fliers and brochures to inform students, parents, and community members about our work to bring natural spaces to Vestal.
As winter approaches, we put the garden to bed and bring our work indoors, saving seeds and planning for spring planting.
And the first shed is complete. Thanks again to Women in Trades for their construction expertise.
