Varsity Girls Soccer Players Help Plant New VUHS Garden

Thank you to Caroline, Shay, Kaitlyn, Lexi, and Breanna for helping plant our four new garden beds at VUHS. Michael Johnston, parent and community member, has been instrumental in establishing the beginning of a community garden at VUHS this summer. We look forward to "growing" this project in the future to provide food directly to our cafeteria and incorporate it into the curriculum. This year we hope to have carrots, leeks, tomatoes, and basil for school lunches. Thanks girls, Michael, and all the businesses that have donated materials or provided them at a significantly reduced cost...Aubuchon's, Greenhaven Gardens, Gardener's Supply. See some pictures here.
