Volunteers have been busy getting Pace University’s Pleasantville garden ready for the season. Led by Professors Angelo Spillo and Shobana Musti, students from the Environmental Studies and MS in Nutrition and Dietetics programs at Pace helped move plants out of pots and into the garden.
The focus last week was to transplant lettuce, spinach, beans, squash, melons, beets, cucumbers, and a few others. So far, the garden is doing well despite the late start.
