FEED News - We need your help!

FEED News - We need your help!

As you pull up to the front of the school, you can't help but notice our incredible gardens!  These are due to the efforts of Erica Frey-Delaportas, chairperson of our FEED (Food Education Every Day) program, and her committee of various SCS teachers and staff, and community volunteers.  They help our students participate in the planting, weeding, maintenance and harvest of these vegetable gardens.  This year, we are growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, kale, carrots, beets, radishes, zucchini, cantaloupe, basil, parsley and cilantro, which will be used in the school lunch program!

During the summer months, our helpers are not always available.  That's why we need your help!  Please consider volunteering some time during one week this summer to help us maintain the SCS FEED Gardens.  We still need help during the weeks of 7/3, 7/24, 7/31, 8/7, 8/14, and 8/21.  Please let Erica know if you are available to help at efreydelaportas@cssu.org.  She will contact you to explain the guidelines. 

A job well done!
Thanks for help us keep our community gardens healthy and productive!
