Slow Food East End awarded $4,000 in aid to school gardens at its annual meeting in Bridgehampton. Grants of $500 each went to eight area schools: Bridgehampton School, East Hampton High School, Greenport School, Hampton Bays Middle School, Sag Harbor School, Southold School, Springs School and Tuckahoe School.
“Being able to help our local schools start and develop school gardens has been a mission of our East End chapter of Slow Food since our founding in 2004 at the American Hotel,” said Mary Morgan, president of SFEE. The program is supported by the Levine family and the Josh Levine Memorial Foundation. The grants were specifically tailored to meet the needs of already established gardens to help with day-to-day needs
