As the school year comes to a close, Westhampton Beach Elementary School students who worked in the school’s greenhouse throughout the year showed off their green thumbs at an open house on Tuesday afternoon.

Dozens of students, mostly fourth and fifth graders, ran stations to show parents and community members their work in preparing a garden, composting, seeding and harvesting the produce.
