THE STORY:

Wyandanch NY (Long Island) is a small, low income, minority community. The student body at the middle school is about 69% African American and 30% Hispanic. The majority of students are eligible for free lunch.

Ours is the first food producing garden at our middle school. There is a lot of food insecurity in our community and limited access to fresh produce. We hope that having a garden will eventually add fresh produce to the cafeteria menu and enable students to learn not only how to grow food themselves, but how to appreciate, prepare, cook and eat healthy fresh foods. The focus will not just be on having the garden, but also on how we can use the garden and its produce as a focal point for nutrition education at the middle school and for the community. We hope the garden will also pull in parents to be involved.

Starflower Experiences is happy to have help from Slow Food North Shore for this project! Welcome Slow Food folks. :)


We now have half our beds set up and planted. The Life Skills class has been caring for the garden this fall and enjoying cucumbers and carrots. But we still need to set up the other half of our beds and get soil for them (they are raised beds). We are also looking for someone who can help put up a chain link fence, and need garden tools, and a storage shed as well as funds for next year's seeds/plants.
