Volunteers Plant Garden at Fox Run

Fox Run Elementary is the latest Norwalk school to install an edible garden.  Employees from Vertrue , a local Internet marketing company, spent Thursday constructing and prepping beds behind the school.

“This is a way for us to give back to the community," said David Guidice, director of engineering at Vertrue.  “It’s our first time working with the public schools.  We hope to do more with them in the future.”

In appreciation, students decorated water bottles with “Thank you for our garden.” They also made signs and hung them from their classroom windows.

Fox Run students and teachers will use the garden to learn about science, environmentalism, health and nutrition.

By the end of the spring, Norwalk Grows— a partnership of the school district, Norwalk Children’s Foundation and many local corporations—will have installed 11 school gardens. Last fall, gardens were planted at Rowayton and Brien McMahon. So far this spring, gardens have been created at Norwalk High, Naramake, Jefferson, Nathan Hale, Silvermine, and Fox Run. Wolfpit and Brookside gardens will be planted in the coming weeks.  All Norwalk Public Schools are eligible for a garden and need to apply to the district for next year’s installations.
