New Club Grows At Holyoke High

Thanks to the Garden Club, healthy foods are blooming at Holyoke High School.
The garden club at Holyoke high school collaborated with Nuestras Raices and Food Corps not only to expose students to healthy foods but providing experiences to grow their own food. This spring the club will have four raised beds in the small newly built garden for the school encouraging students to adapt a healthier lifestyle. The raised garden bed is accessible to all students and the club would like all students to have a voice in creating the garden.
“The HHS Garden Club is looking for students interested in helping to start this project,” said Ms. Kincaid, HHS science teacher and club leader. “We hope that students will see our progress and reach out to join.”
The garden club hopes to teach students about where their food is coming from. They also hope the club will allow to connect the classroom with the cafeteria and even provide an outdoor space for lessons.
By being in the club students will gain skills for building and maintaining a garden. The club will not only help the school but would like to have a long term goal of making life long healthy choices.
