Building Community, Building Lives

Since I started volunteering at PYB, I have come to the understanding that there is more to these young adults than anyone gives them credit for.

Spring Planting Begins in PYB's Garden

Spring Planting Begins in PYB's Garden

Through a generous in-kind donation from Tony's Garden Center, construction students were able to plant lettuce and kale starts this month in PYB's garden.

As an ongoing project, the goal of the PYB garden is to serve as an outdoor classroom in conjunction with the current nutrition education program.

Along with planting the lettuce and kale, students also planted onions, fava beans, peas and raspberries. Construction students began the garden preparations by weeding, turning soil, and building a sturdy trellis made of wood and wire. Students and staff will continue working in the garden on a bi-weekly basis.
