The BHS Garden and Food Justice Club have finished building a new garden at the high school. Working with the Belmont Food Collaborative it will be run by students throughout the summer and fall, providing organically raised produce for the Belmont Food Pantry. The club, new this year, hosted a Winter Food Drive at the high school and helped to lead a Global Awareness Week.
Growing in four raised beds, the garden has started out with beets and beans, and will be adding tomatoes, eggplants and peppers. While the group is hoping to get more high schoolers involved, any interest from the Belmont community is more than welcome! If you’re looking to lend a hand in any way, you can contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
