Gardens, Gardens, Gardens

School Garden:
The Berwick Elementary Schools have submitted an application for a Seeds of Change grant. The plan would be to possibly make use of the Knowlton School greenhouse to start seeds and plant a school garden. Ideally students would build the garden project to a point where we would plant crops that we could use in our school lunch program. Extra harvest and crops that would grow to fruition during the summer could be donated to the local food pantry or sold at a local farmers’ market to sustain the garden project.

Kindergarten Screening and Registration

The V.E. Hussey School’s Kindergarten Screening/Registration will be held on Tuesday, May 20th through Thursday, May 22nd.
