A project at the Bellows Falls Middle School that stretched from one school year to the next has turned a little-used patch of lawn into a beautiful and bountiful vegetable garden.
Eighth grader Jordan Morse, in right photo, started the project with teacher Mary Lou Massucco as an after school program through a 21st Century Grant.They also made some garden "signature" bricks out of terra cotta clay with words on them and they were fired in the kiln and placed in the garden. Jordan and Mary Lou continued as volunteers throughout the summer.
The garden produced tomatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, popcorn, zucchini, green beans and wax beans. Also several varieties of sunflowers and other flowers.
