JW Cooks+Gardens: Tasting herbs, planting blues

May 11, 2017

Fantastic news to report from JW Middle School: Nyrie Janho’s food science course is so popular that Priscilla Hayes’ accompanying garden lessons have necessitated an expansion of the edible gardens! Newly installed rain barrels will help with watering needs for the plantings until we can get an outdoor spigot installed there. Under the direction of Priscilla and Janet Gaudino, 8th-grade science teacher and advisor, students in JW Cooks + Gardens planted blueberries in the lovely (and little-used) courtyard yesterday, after they took a tasting tour of herbs and greens growing in the established gardens next to the playing fields. We are grateful to McCaffrey’s Food Markets and to Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund for their generous support of this vital program!
