High school students Sidney Klainberg, Sadie Donnelly, Jackie Nikakis, Priya Alagesan, avnd Alice Donnelly, along with moms Harriet Nikakis and Merilyn Donnelly, arrived early Saturday morning to tend to the Manhasset Secondary School’s vegetable garden. All were eager to decompress after two weeks of finals and year-end school projects. While the girls reminisced about the school year just ended and chatted about summer plans, they were busy in the garden.
The morning was spent sweeping walkways, weeding (much needed thanks to recent rains), staking snap peas and pole beans, pruning an overgrown bush, planting a few small azaleas, watering, and raking feathers from the mulch. Best experience of the day - admiring the new addition to the tomato patch – pineapple plants!
