Harvest Time Again at Lewisboro Elementary

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – It is harvest time again at Lewisboro Elementary School.

Since the last school year, the students at Lewisboro Elementary have been maintaining the school’s first sustainable garden in the building’s courtyard. The crops are grown throughout the spring, summer and fall and are used to create soup for lunch. The rest of the vegetables are sold off with the profits helping to maintain the garden.

The idea for the garden came from second grade teacher Denise Lupia, who oversaw the project.

“Every student came in and partnered up – one would dig and the other would plant the seeds,” she said. “They really got into it.”

The students harvested the vegetables and herbs yesterday (Tuesday) and began chopping them up for the soup, which is being served today (Wednesday). Contact Michelle Colman at michelle@ubwb.com if you want to help out.

The recipes for the soup and pesto that the students will create are posted online. If you have allergy concerns, visit the website at www.lespta.com and click on the Soup/Recipe tab for a list of ingredients.
