PS 261 Philip Livingston School is starting up a vegetable garden. The school had a gathering with parents, students and the PTA on Saturday, November 13th to construct garden boxes for their Garden261.
The garden will give students a hands-on lesson about vegetables and nature. It is also an opportunity for them to learn about nutrition and the importance of eating locally grown food. The new garden has already brought the community together and it will be something that students can take pride in.
PS 261 is located at 314 Pacific Street between Atlantic Avenue and Dean Street. Parents can contact that school at 718-330-9275 for more information on the garden and upcoming volunteer opportunities.
