You wouldn't believe it by the temperature but April is National Gardening Month. To celebrate, the JFK Library hosted local business owner Frank DiMaggio of DiMaggio Landscaping and Garden Center on South Oyster Bay Road during lunch periods on April 15th. Mr. DiMaggio spoke to the students about gardening and growing vegetables on Long Island and answered a lot of great and well-informed questions.

The students also had the opportunity to plant some vegetable seeds of their choosing to take home and watch grow. Hopefully, many Bethpage families will be literally reaping the benefits of the students' plantings in a couple of months!

Finally, four students were selected by a raffle to win $25 gift certificates to DiMaggio Landscaping. The winners were Sophia Kieseheuer, Alex Johneas, Brian Saccone and Kaylagh Walsh.
