The Gardens are well under way… three organic gardens have been installed on our school campuses for the students to use as "outdoor classrooms". Manhasset is joining the nationwide movement to reconnect young people to the earth and the pleasure of growing their own food.  Garden Volunteers can choose to adopt for one week or more over the summer, to be sure gardens are weeded, properly irrigated and harvested.  Volunteers may keep up to half of the crop.  The rest is donated to community food pantries.

Unauthorized Use of SCA Directories
It has come to the attention of the SCA that some community groups may have used information obtained from the SCA directories to send unsolicited emails to members of the community. The SCA has not provided email addresses published in the directories to any community groups for the purpose of enabling such groups to initiate email messages. If you are in receipt of any unwanted emails from such groups, you may remove your email address from their distribution lists by choosing the unsubscribe link in the group's email. If you continue to receive unwanted emails after unsubscribing, or if the unwanted emails do not contain an unsubscribe link, you may file a complaint at spam@uce.gov. For further information on filing a complaint, see www.FTC.gov
