National Park

Color Pittsford Green

CPG is initiating a program to encourage residents to participate in this fun effort – in their own yards – that will help restore our community’s biodiversity, ecological health, and beauty.  The more yards that join, the more connected these healthy plots of land can be.

JP Victory Garden
Johanna Perrin Victory Garden 

Sponsor a garden bed!

Students at JP will have the opportunity to plan, build, propagate, maintain, harvest and use produce from a new raised bed garden in our school courtyard. This work was supported, in part, by Cornell’s Office of Engagement Initiatives.

Once established, a portion of their summer harvest will be donated to the Perinton Food Shelf.
