Newport School District won a competitive grant from Whole Foods Stores in the amount of $2,000 to go toward building a school garden at Richards School. Students in Mrs. Ferrigno’s first grade class will have the opportunity to build garden beds and grow plants that produce a variety of uncommon vegetables. These vegetables will be either eaten by the students in Mrs. Ferrigno’s class or sold to Café Services to feed students throughout Richards School. The money earned from sales will go toward purchasing seeds and supplies for the following year.
