Crossroads Farm

North High School's Ecology Club continued its relationship with Crossroads Farm at Grossmann's in Malverne, a fall visit held on November 7. Approximately 20 students and their advisor, Stephanie Restuccio, spent the afternoon at the farm learning about growing fall crops such as lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, kale and cabbage. The students planted lettuce and spinach seedlings, weeded, and examined worms while discussing their role in soil.

Crossroads is the closest working farm to New York City and strives to be a leader in sustainable agriculture. In 2006, it was saved by the Nassau Land Trust and has since become a certified organic farm.
