FANS’ latest project was promoting gardening as a hobby and a science learning opportunity. Members of the FANs of Ballston Spa organization, the Milton Grange, community participants (including volunteer landscape architects) and the Ballston Spa Middle/High Schools joined together and develop a successful community garden. The garden offered a wonderful opportunity for residents of all ages to become involved in an activity with many benefits. Lots of students, teachers and residents enjoyed the space! It is hoped the Community Garden(s) will help promote healthy eating. Additionally, a portion of the produce is going to local food pantries.
