Garden Partnership and Grant for Putnam CCE and Camp Herrlich

Garden Partnership and Grant for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Putnam County and Camp Herrlich

We are excited to announce the receipt of a $ 1000.00 grant from Cornell Garden-Based Learning to fund the Camp Herrlich garden for 2017.  Thanks to the efforts of Katherine Everitt and Jennifer Stengle of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Putnam County, and in partnership with Jessica Vanacoro and Camp Herrlich, children in the Camp After School Program and the Summer Day and Sleepaway Camp programs will get to experience firsthand how wonderful, educational, and fulfilling it is to grow your own food.

The partnership will include funding the Camp garden, providing plants and gardening gear for campers to take home with them, nutrition workshops provided by Kris Boyle from the Putnam County Health Department, and gardening workshops and trainings for Camp staff and campers provided by the Cornell Cooperative Extension educators and Master Gardener Volunteers.
