Students at the Bedford Rd. School in Pleasantville spent part of their school day as farmers, as they harvested crops grown in the school garden. Students in the kindergarten through fourth grade school were learning about corn, beans, and squash, which were referred to as the “three sisters” crops by Native Americans. Students spent part of their school day harvesting crops that they planted in the garden last spring. Seeds from some of the harvested crops will be re-planted by the students in order to grow another generation of crops. The harvest was actually the culmination of a project that started last spring when the students first planted the crops. Look for more photos from the event in an upcoming Northern Westchester Express.
