We dig Houston!

This weekend, Sysco volunteers rolled up their sleeves at Whittier Elementary’s large, community garden to help Urban Harvest and the school clean up 11 vegetable beds and prep them for spring planting, which will include an array of culinary herbs and flowers. Other plots were weeded, tilled and seeded with cover crops of sunflowers and southern peas. All of this hard work for the school’s outdoor space will allow students to plant their spring garden, helping little minds to sprout and flourish, and instill respect for healthy foods and the environment!
