VEGGIE CREW: Maintenance worker Javier Sanchez waters the new vegetable garden outside the Music and Math Departments on the north end of school June 17. For their senior project, seniors Jenny Newman and Jaclyn Kellner planted 88 vegetable plants in what had been dry and weed-covered dirt, first digging up the weeds and then replacing some of the soil.  They hope to sell the produce — from 28 tomato (including the cherry tomato, above center), two parsley, 14 cucumber, four squash, 36 strawberry and four horseradish plants, along with a blueberry bush, to raise funds for future senior Poland/Israel trips. “We hope students will visit the garden and learn what their food looks like as it grows,” said Jaclyn. They were aided by junior Leah Katz and freshman Eric Lunzer, who say they will take care of the garden next year along with junior Adam Kellner and Judaic Studies teacher Mr. Jason Feld.
