The Albany Options School woodshop class, under the direction of Chava Neuhaus, built 12 raised beds out of cedar planks.
Lacey Edmiston designed the planters and their layout on the AOS site, taking care to leave enough walkway room for students to plant and care for the vegetables and flowers they plan to grow.
The garden will be used for classes in science, health, nutrition, art and service learning, among other subjects.
“Having a garden has been a dream at AOS for a long time and it’s finally becoming a reality,” said Anna Sokolov, the school’s Business to School liaison. “Our dream is that eventually it’ll be able to produce enough to support our school cafeteria.”
