Seeds of Summer

As we’ve mentioned in past issues, we encourage our participants to get involved in community projects and relish any opportunity to teach them about local stewardship. Our COMPASS participants at PS 115 continue to make great strides with their community garden; more recently, students have had the opportunity to learn about compost, specifically, the essential role it plays in the health of soil and plants. This, with the addition of mulch, helps to keep down weeds as well as regulate temperature.

This is knowledge that proves essential during a busy time; spring crops continue to grow as students begin to plant summer crops. As we reach late spring we can expect a plentiful harvest of crops like asian greens, broccoli, and beans.

We’re so proud of the fruits (and vegetables) of our participants’ labor!
