Ecology & Sustainability
Hillel Community Day School believes in reinforcing learned concepts through real-world application. The Learning Garden is an example of how we put this belief into practice. The children witness and participate in the planting process through germination and even harvesting vegetables for the use in the cafeteria menu.
The Learning Garden
Hillel Community Day School was awarded the Learning Garden Grant from the Captain Planet Foundation in 2016.
Local government officials and NYS Senators joined executives from Top's Friendly Markets, Dole Packaged Foods and Captain Planet Foundation to inaugurate the garden in 2017.
