Yonkers students planting with NY first lady
Michelle Paterson took a trip to Somers this week with some lucky students from Yonkers to plant potatoes at Muscoot Farms, all part of Paterson's 'Healthy Steps to Albany' contest.
Students from Montessori School 31 and the Hawthorne Pearls School were the winners of Paterson's contest to fight childhood obesity.
Paterson says that bringing the students to the farm helps students see where their food comes from and how it gets to them.
Tayian Harris, a sixth-grade student, says he and his classmates plan on being healthy well after the contest. "I never knew being healthy was going to be fun," Harris says. "We're not going to stop."
