Welcome back to school! Hope you enjoyed the summer as much we did.
We’ve worked hard to keep the gardens growing with the help of many volunteers.
Much gratitude to those of you who watered your school garden over the summer!
We also had the pleasure of working with Beacon’s Green Teen next step interns, Kindu and Isabela. We’ve all been busy weeding, planting, and harvesting. Much of the produce was donated to St. Andrew’s food pantry and served in healthy snacks made with Beacon Recreation campers and participants in the free meals program at the Newburgh Library.
