Wheeler Avenue Garden Club Plants Trees on School Grounds

October 26, 2017

The Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Wheeler Avenue School has put their Garden Club to work this fall. The Garden Club recently planted 14 Arborvitae trees on school grounds. Mr. Jacob, the Garden Club advisor and retired District teacher, hopes that this afterschool program will help pass along his love and respect for nature to all participating students.

The Garden Club helps the District instill a base knowledge of nature in students—enabling these students to go forth and play their role in preserving the environment.
