May 27, 2009 — Over the last few years, students at a school in the High Peaks have enjoyed fresh veggies from their schoolyard garden. What began as a composting experiment ten years ago has grown into a school-wide project that teaches youngsters the importance of healthy eating, gardening skills and the environment. This year more than 60 elementary students will volunteer to plant and weed the garden. Julie Holbrook, cafeteria manager at Keene Central School, coordinates the garden. She told Todd Moe she injured her leg last summer, and students and volunteers stepped up to help with the garden harvest.
