Students at Mount Greylock Regional High School are busy harvesting kale, tomatoes, squash, and pumpkins from the school garden this fall.

To celebrate their harvest, the Garden Club and Greylock Cooks! will host a harvest party at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the high school.

Anyone in the community is welcome to attend. There is no cost for the potluck dinner; guests should bring a dish to share and are encouraged to use local ingredients in their recipes.

The garden was first planted in spring 2010, and has been maintained by the student-run Garden Club, the Youth Environmental Squad, and interns from Williams College.

Seasonal produce from the garden is used by cafeteria staff in school lunches during the school year and is donated in the summer to the Berkshire Food Project through the Williams College WRAPS program.

Rebecca Green, biology and environmental science teacher, is the faculty advisor to the school Garden Club.
