RYE, N.Y. -- The Rye YMCA and Jay Heritage Center are set to host a special school gardens workshop on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

The program, known as "Seeds to Schools: A School Gardens Workshop," is set to run from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jay Heritage Center at 210 Boston Post Road in Rye. The program is a free half-day workshop on starting and sustaining school-based edible gardens. Fourteen panelists from nine different schools and one business will share their experiences on starting a garden, using the produce, sustaining the garden and connecting classroom curriculum to hands-on outdoor learning, representatives said.
