The Y Is Growing!















Maintenance staff member Terrence Allen takes great pride in pruning and watering the Plant A Seed Program gardens at the Y.   After a month and a half of sun, water and nurturing, the gardens are flourishing.  Baby cucumbers, squash, tomatoes and three foot stalks of corn will soon be ready for Y residents to enjoy.  It is going to be a great harvest! For more information about our Plant A Seed Program, please contact Dan Staehs, Facilities Director at dstaehs@newarkymca.org.
