Corner Garden Highlights - Winter 2014 by Becky Pelton

Fall Feast Ė In November Long Lake Central School celebrated Thanksgiving with a family-style feast. Locally-grown food was donated by Chris Thompson including carrots, potatoes and cornmeal. Thank you Chris! Our Corner Garden provided more carrots plus some garlic. Mr. Geiger and Ms. Meyette orchestrated the event with the help of students and staff. Folks from the Long Lake meal site as well veterans dined with students and staff altogether in our gym.

This is a list of items we need for the garden.
 Companion planting.doc
Companion planting probably began when early gardeners noticed that some plants seemed to grow best when planted next to certain other plants. There is some science to back up this lore, but many still consider companion planting to be mostly unproven. Of course, gardeners can always try it to see if it works!

1. Children will begin to understand where their food comes from and be a part of the physical process of growing and harvesting food.
2. Children will gain a sense of the life cycle of plants and insects and the interconnectedness of all organisms.
3. Spending time in the garden will allow children to develop a strong connection to the natural world, and a future interest in protecting it.

Food should be healthy. Affordable. And produced with care for the environment; the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it; and farm animals. But too often, our food system puts those
ideals out of reach. Our diets often cause more harm than good for ourselves and our environment, and many people donít have the
money to eat a healthy diet. Thatís where Food Day comes in. Food Day is a nationwide celebration on October 24th and a movement toward healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. Food Day is a grassroots campaign to help solve food-related problems in our homes, on our farms, in our schools, and in our communities. Together we can build better food policies and a stronger, more united food movement. Join the movement thatís changing the way America eats ó visit FoodDay.org!
