Students at Clinton Avenue Elementary School in the Comsewogue School District kicked off autumn with a harvest festival at the school’s community garden. Children decorated pumpkins, created paper scarecrows, planted bulbs in the garden, played corn hole and took photos at a festive face-in-hole photo booth. “The District launched its community garden last year and it is now thriving. It served as a beautification effort and a way to give back to the community through donations. Our garden is always looking for more volunteers and donations,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Quinn.

Clinton Avenue Elementary School Nurse Kelly Klug spearheaded the community garden and manages it with the help of community volunteers. Throughout the summer, they have been growing flowers, fruits and vegetables. In the fall, they harvest the produce and donate it to local food banks. The garden is also host to events throughout the year for children in the community, such as its harvest festival.
