Jefferson's Learning Garden

There was great weather and a great turnout for the dedication of Jefferson's Outdoor Classroom and Learning Garden on October 15. Principal Dr. Susie Hung thanked Jefferson dads John Drennan, Thomas Nastasi, Marc Nissim, Christopher Thornton and all those who contributed to the yearlong project. "It really shows the power of community," said Thornton who added that @ 260 lbs of fresh produce has already been harvested since last spring with @ 172 lbs donated to a local food bank.  The produce planted and harvested by students includes kale, asparagus, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, string beans, and zucchini.
