FRAMINGHAM – For the eighth year, Framingham High students from the National Honor Society, high school teachers, and families prepped the high school garden for the Framingham Public Schools food services department today, April 29.
Food services director Brendan Ryan began the Saxonville Garden at Framingham High nine years ago, and this is the eighth year National Honor Society students have been volunteering at the garden with their advisers.
Last year’s harvest included more than 1,000 gallons of tomato sauce. The garden also produced more 10 gallons of basil pesto, that was used to feed the more than 9,000 students in the Framingham Public Schools district.
About 120 participants cleaned out the planting beds and wheeling soil to the bed in preparation for this year’s planting of crops.
The volunteers worked 3-4 hours prepping the garden.
