It’s Harvest Week at PS 29! Read below to find out what it’s all about and check out our flyer
with the list of all the activities for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!
In 2007, the PS29 garden began as a brainstorm within the school community – teachers, school chefs, administration and parents – and has since literally grown into our own unique food community. Once the garden beds were built and the veggies were sprouting, the bounty of this “Seed to Plate” effort merged with Harvest Day, a project originally brought to our school in 2008 with the support of the Garden to Café program, funded by the Mayor’s Fund.
This year marks the 5th Annual Harvest Celebration. Parents, teachers, and students alike have come together to make our garden thrive with more than 20 different vegetables and herbs. Throughout the year the garden also continues to serve as inspiration for teachers who design math, science and reading lessons to be carried out in the garden. The garden provides fresh ingredients for our ongoing healthy cafeteria initiatives, giving our children access to healthier food and exposure to gardening and nature in our distinctive urban setting. Together, we are celebrating good food and good health.
We hope you enjoy this!
