A group of about 15 elementary school students from the West Canada Valley (WCV) Garden Club visited the Community Garden on June 15. The WCV Garden Club was established in 1991 and is open to students in grades three through six.

During the visit, farm managers Christine Roback ’12, Sarah Gamble ’13 and Andrew Pape ’11 explained some of their gardening methods and what crops are being grown. As a special treat, Dean of Students Nancy Thompson demonstrated the workings of her beehive adjacent to the Community Garden. Later, Associate Professor of German and Russian Languages and Literatures Frank Sciacca gave the students a tour of the 1812 Garden. The students planted a row of “Cups,” a heritage variety potato known to predate the Irish Potato Famine.
