Watch students at Temple Hill Academy in Newburgh painting a mural in the new Hudson Valley Seed school garden!

Temple Hill Academy is the first of nine Newburgh public elementary schools to join the Hudson Valley Seed program, with 392 students currently participating in weekly garden time. Two more Newburgh schools will join the program in Spring of 2015. This program will include collaboration with The Greater Hudson Valley Family Health Center, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Orange County, The Newburgh City School District and other community partners. For this program to be possible in Newburgh, 100% of funding is being provided by Hudson Valley Seed and our supporters. All nine elementary schools are projected to begin participating in the Hudson Valley Seed weekly program by Spring of 2017.
