Construction of Humphrey edible garden begins this weekend
BOLINGBROOK – Humphrey Middle School students will be eating lettuce and radishes from their own edible garden before the first snow falls this winter.
A grant from the Valley View School District Nutrition Services Department allows Humphrey to become the third school – following Tibbott Elementary and Jane Addams – to have an edible garden. Three other schools will soon follow suit, according to district officials.
“Eighty percent of what grows in this garden will actually be served in our cafeteria,” said 6th grade special education math teacher Michelle Stiff, co-coordinator of the Humphrey Edible Garden Committee.
