P.S. 83 students to revitalize school garden

P.S. 83 students had a hands-on lesson in environmental preservation Thursday as part of the Greener New York Initiative.



With the help of Councilman James Vacca and a $39,000 grant, the students will revitalize a garden outside their school.



But before the work started, they got a chance to pick out pumpkins to carve ahead of Halloween.



The initiative seeks to promote green space through education. The garden project won't begin until spring.
