Students in the High School’s Long Island Sustainability class recently prepared raised garden beds by turning over the soil and working the material into a fine and loose consistency before sowing the season's first crop, peas! According to teacher Kevin Nohejl, students planted both sugar snap and sweet pea varieties and are hoping for a delicious harvest around the third week of May. Along the way, they will be track plant growth and development in response to a variety of planned manipulations including soil type, nutrient solutions, and varied integrated pest management practices.
