2014 Community Service Project, Skidmore Community Garden

Skidmore Pre-College students connect with Saratoga Springs through community service. This summer, our project will help launch Skidmore’s new Community Garden! The Skidmore Community Garden is in its first year on Wiecking Green. There are many things we need help with, so come get your hands dirty! We will start with a quick tour of the garden and then we will begin planting and harvesting vegetables and building new garden structures.
