Earlier this year, students from Northwest planted lettuce and carrots in the courtyard garden with help from Pastor Jeff from Calvary Chapel of Hope in Amityville. 

Last week, Pastor Jeff and Northwest social worker Debra Lee assisted the students with harvesting the lettuce. The students were able to see the life cycle of plants and enjoyed preparing and eating their salad, which included lettuce, strawberries, apples and Italian dressing. 

Northwest Principal Vincent Todisco expressed his pride in the garden, as it has beautified the courtyard. He also took time to thank the Amityville Parent Teacher Council for making a generous monetary donation to the Northwest Garden Committee and Pastor Jeff for all of his hard work and collaboration with the school.
