Village Post - - News | Feature -

On Sept. 20, five per cent of all grocery sales was do­nated to the school’s gar­den project.

Dim­i­tra Kap­pos, chair of the Brown Ju­nior Public School par­ent coun­cil said the project con­sists of 80 to 100 milk crates filled with plants and veg­eta­bles, and ex­pects to raise ap­prox­i­mately $5,000 through the Whole Foods cam­paign.

“We have so many dif­fer­ent ini­tia­tives that we have at the school, hav­ing some­body like Whole Foods step up … eases the bur­den on other fundrais­ing that we do to ac­tu­ally fo­cus on dif­fer­ent things,” she said.
