I'm pleased to announce that Groton Central School was awarded a $500 grant to install a "Hoop House" at our student vegetable garden for the purpose of growing spinach and other leafy vegetables for the school cafeteria. This will allow us to add 3-4 months on to our growing season and add more crops while school is in session. The grant was provided by the New York "Agriculture in the Classroom" program. SO....what this means is that I'll be looking for volunteers this spring that would like to be involved with the construction of this greenhouse and the planting proccess.
