PAL Summer Gardening Program – Class 2

07/28/2011 — Today, a group of 10 kids from the Police Athletic League (PAL) went to the Jackie Robinson Community Garden on 122nd and Park Avenue to continue the maintenance of their designated plot. After having a conversation about proper community garden etiquette, the kids, both excited and confident, went straight to work–first weeding and watering, then onto harvesting and collecting the ripe peppers, tomatoes, and zucchinis. We ended class by clearing the pathways around the plot to place bricks along the sides making our section a more welcoming place. Looking forward to the next work day!
