Valley Stream, NY (November 2021) — Recently, North High School’s Ecology Club took a trip to Crossroads Farm with science teacher and club advisor Stephanie Restuccio to learn about biodynamic farming. Biodynamic farming is a holistic, ecological and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food and nutrition. A key aspect of this form of farming is the saving of seeds to be used for future planting. Following a tour of the farm and an introduction to biodynamic farming, the students had the hands-on experience of harvesting seeds from the buds of dead flowers to be used for new flower plantings next year. Students also learned how saving seeds helps foster genetic diversity and offers opportunities for creating new varieties of plantings.

“Organizing activities such as the Ecology Club’s visit to Crossroads Farm augments and helps bring to life principles our students are learning in the classroom,” said North High School Interim Principal Dr. Robin Small. “The Ecology Club, like the many other clubs at North High School, provides an opportunity for students to explore their interests and passions with like-minded students. These clubs also provide a social outlet, which is critical for our students’ social-emotional health.”
