This past Saturday, I represented my community garden at a raised bed-building workshop put on by Green Thumb & Grow to Learn. It was great to meet the teachers and staff who make up the wellness committee at PS1, The Bergen School, in Sunset Park. They are starting a school garden, so our skill-building workshop was put to use assembling four raised beds for the school. As a benefit of attending, our garden will be eligible for free lumber to repair and replace our own raised beds. Here's hoping the kids and teachers at PS 1 have a successful first growing season in those new beds!
