ASAS Students at Lincoln Elementary are getting ready for CYSD 2014

Students in Lincoln Elementary’s After-School All-Stars’ clubs are getting ready for CYSD, when they’ll partner with Chicago Cares to weed, mulch, plant, paint and compost at two local community gardens.  In preparation for the day students discussed personal, community and environmental benefits to community gardening.

Lincoln students also planted vegetables and flowers, then sold their plants during a school band performance. The proceeds were donated to the Lakeview Pantry and Chicago Cares.
