Scarsdale Garden: Plenty to Do

At Yale Day of Service, the Scarsdale Garden needs help this year raising a deer fence (Scarsdale Maroon photos)

Yale Day of Service returns to Scarsdale May 10 to assist the Scarsdale Sustainable Garden Project. Maggie Favretti '85 below, who helps direct the project, encourages Yale alumni, family and friends to volunteer on the grounds at Scarsdale High School. The group has a specific assignment for the day:

The Scarsdale High School Sustainable Garden Project is hosting its Third Annual Spring Volunteer Celebration Day and Potluck Picnic on Saturday May 10, from 10-2 at the Garden in Scarsdale.

Join us for a day of hair-raising deer-fence raising and potluck friendship. We might try to recruit you to our inter-generational team of amazing garden volunteers, who steadfastly help us to cultivate and donate between 1,500 and 2,000 pounds of food each year. Rain date will be Mother's Day (May 11)!

If interested, please respond to Maggie Favretti at 914-721-2567. Or register online by clicking YDoS-SCARSDALE.

We need help raising a deer fence so that we don't have to take valuable time away from planting our seedlings and getting our garden ready for a productive summer. If the deer fence goes up really fast, there's plenty to do to keep everyone busy! And there's a picnic, too.
