IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO GROW A GARDEN
A project that began as a rooftop garden started by Lynbrook High School Culinary Arts Club members seven years ago has grown into a schoolwide endeavor to celebrate healthy eating and cooking, ecology, teamwork, school beautification and community pride.

"When the district replaced the school windows a few years ago, we were no longer able to get out on the roof easily," said culinary arts teacher and club advisor Lauren Reganato. Art chairperson Vincent Lentini reached out to physical education chairperson Rob Kolb about making space for a garden in the area that houses the Owl Adventure physical challenge apparatus. Lentini even volunteered to build the garden boxes.
When the garden was relocated to ground level, it opened up an opportunity for students in the high school's career development program to take over the planting, maintenance and harvesting of the garden. Participants also gained the satisfaction of preparing and eating the fruits and vegetables of their labors. The gardeners shared their bounty by throwing a garden salad party for faculty last spring.

"This has become an integral part of the career development curriculum," said Reganato. "The garden has helped impart knowledge about the benefits of planting and cooking our own organic produce, while using the most earth-friendly and cost effective practices."

This year, career development students acted as mentors to Waverly Park students who had begun their own school garden this year, teaching them how to roast the kale they harvested from their first fall planting. They also visited Waverly Park to demonstrate how to use their garden as a biology learning lab, and plan to plant together later in the spring.

The garden has become a focal point of community pride and synergy, bringing various segments of the school population together to improve and beautify the garden. Deb DeBetta's mindfulness class helped decorate the space. Brian Hetrick's Owl Adventure students watered between classes. Doreen Combs' physical education students volunteered their time to help clean, weed and water. Dorothy McCarthy's yoga class recycled yoga mats to make a peace sign on the gate. The National Art Honor Society set part of the proceeds from Night of the Pumpkins toward the garden.

The community spirit inspired by the garden even spread beyond the boundaries of the school. Art teacher Tom Sena's father arranged for an exchange with the Cornell Cooperative Extension. "I am going to do some cooking classes for them in their new kitchen and in return they sent three master gardeners to share their knowledge with us," said Reganato.

"It has been wonderful to witness everyone coming together around the garden," said DeBetta. "Gardening has had a positive effect on our physical, mental, emotional, environmental and social health
