EKO Commission Planting Trip

Yesterday,  25 dedicated students under the leadership of Rabbi Moses Haber, helped preserve Prospect Park's nature. They took the train at 9:00AM and once they got started at 10, it was non-stop working for the next 3 hours. They went down on their hands and knees to dig up all the old plants that died over the summer, which filled up a total of 15 garbage bags! They then planted new plants and flowers to replace the old ones. The foliage never looked better. To end the day, the students went for a  scenic nature walk for half an hour before returning to school. It was a really fun experience and one full of accomplishment for all who were involved.   ~Victor Dweck, Head Commissioner, EKO Commission
