Introducing Chicopee's newest school garden! We're thrilled to have a new raised bed garden right outside Lambert-Lavoie Elementary School. So far, we've got a variety of crops planted for students to harvest this fall, such as radishes, beets, carrots, and lettuce. We've also planted herbs for a fun sensory experience. Come spring, students will participate in Salad Days programming. They will also have the opportunity to take part in a garden club led by FoodCorps Service Member, Kelly Zimmerhanzel. If you are a Lambert parent or a resident of the neighborhood and are interested in getting involved, please reach out to either Kelly or Greta. Thank you!
