DANBURY, Conn. -- In honor of Earth Day, members of the Danbury Garden Club, Pembroke PTO and Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut joined forces to prepare the Pembroke School Courtyard for spring bloom.

Debbie Nichols and Maureen Farrell, along with Western Connecticut State University student Keeler Judson, cleared the raised beds in preparation for spring vegetable garden planting.

Now, students from Stay & Play and the SCRAM Program can plant potatoes, strawberries, lettuce, spinach and herbs -- crops that prefer the colder spring weather.

The Pembroke Garden is funded through community sponsors, including Whole Foods, Anthem Foundation and Meserve Foundation.

The program will start this spring and continue throughout the summer with Danbury campers.
