A heaping 7 yards of compost soil delivered to West Vernon

It was quite a lot of compost, but then again, there’s quite a lot of garden to cover!


The task of moving the soil into the garden area required an impressive amount of teamwork; teachers, students, and administrators alike pitched in to expedite the process.

Many students were happy to dig, bucket, and transport the soil into the garden, while others focused on weeding the plots of land that were to be receiving the compost. Everyone was excited at the prospect of setting up the new plants with nutrient-rich soil.


Dedicated weeders


Dedicated raker


To reward ourselves, we harvested some chard from the garden and topped it off with a healthy quinoa, bean, and vegetable salad dressed in a lemon vinaigrette.
