On March 11 Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School middle school students harvested, packaged, and sold fresh produce from the school’s Community Garden and Tower Garden. St. Joe’s students, from the youngest three year olds to graduating eighth-graders, participated in tending the gardens as all learned sustainability, organic gardening, and the business of farming. Andrew Wideroff, middle school science teacher and garden lover, stated, “It is really enjoyable watching students integrate plant biology with our pledge to be green; the experience provides a broad spectrum learning platform for all.”
