At the beginning of summer, Nancy Galdi and her staff of volunteers and instructors—Allison Wright, Michelle Sommerville, Jon Fischer, Catherine Heinzer and Ryan Corzine—started the first children’s at Children of Promise Stable in Nanuet.
The garden was for third and fourth grade students who attend Highview Elementary School in Nanuet.
Since then, the garden has come a long way. In the photo, Carmelo proudly holds up a garden cucumber.
"Carmelo was one of the students in the other Nanuet class that planted all the crops," said Galdi. "He came to see his garden and picked this cucumber. I have been trying to give out the produce to all the kids that planted them and are around. We just nailed a ceder fence up today and painting the shed where the volunteers left off."
