One year ago...

...the Vestal Community Garden opened! It's hard to believe that the garden has only been up and running for one year. In the past 12 months we have:

-Provided hands-on outdoor learning opportunities to the 450 students at Vestal School, instilling environmental stewardship and healthy lifestyle habits.

-Increased parent and community member involvement at Vestal Sch
ool through garden classroom representative and work party volunteer opportunities.
- Turned an impervious area of black top into a bountiful garden that treats and retains storm water, improving our watershed health.

We look forward to the coming year and all it has in store. Thanks to everyone for helping to make our first year a success!
