BCMS Garden Club featured on WNYT

Filed in District, Student Spotlight by on October 12, 2017

On Tuesday, October 10, WNYT News Channel 13 aired a story highlighting the hard work and success of the Bethlehem Central Middle School Garden Club. Anchor Jerry Gretzinger interviewed a few club members, along with “veggie whisperer” Mr. Warford, as they showed what it takes to maintain the school’s extensive gardens and shared their devotion to delivering delicious and nutritious food options to students and the community at large.

On Friday, October 6, all students at the school had the opportunity to try a salad, free of charge, made with vegetables grown in the garden. All through the month of October, local restaurant Garden Bistro 24, is featuring produce grown at the school on their Tuesday menus. A portion of the proceeds from Tuesday sales at the restaurant will be returned to the Garden Club.

Below are some photos from WNYT’s visit to the school:
