| October 1, 2015

Students in the high school’s environmental studies class recently learned about sustainable agriculture in suburban and urban communities through a partnership between the district and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schenectady County (CCE).

Through the Seed to School program, students went on-site to learn the agricultural industry’s best practices regarding integrated pest management, traditional versus organic growing, invasive species, and the payback of composting.  CCE’s Roots and Wisdom field mentor and educator Jenny Hudman spent the day sharing knowledge, which students can now apply in the high school’s experimental and productive school gardens.
