Jim Minerich, of Breezy Point, may have retired from teaching five years ago, but he continues his work in education with the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) at Eagle View Elementary School in Breezy Point.
Formerly a fourth-grade teacher, Minerich coordinates the activities in the garden, involving students in the planting, weeding, harvesting and eating of vegetables grown there.
“It’s all hands-on in the dirt. I want them to see gardening and do gardening,” Minerich said.
