The Port Chester School Board has voted and is accepting $4,500 from the Rye YMCA to support garden programs at three of the district’s schools: JFK Magnet School, Thomas A. Edison Community School and Port Chester Middle School.


The $1,500 grants will allow each school to enhance garden programs already in the schools or to allow them to create a garden program.


Rye Y Executive Director Gregg Howells remarked “We believe that school gardens embody the spirit of the Community Transformation Grant, allowing children and youth to make the “seed to table” connection, learn about nutrition, engage in physical activity and develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. We’re delighted to be able to support school gardens in Port Chester, knowing they will make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families.”
