Cairine Wilson Kitchen Garden
Our project currently has 2 raised bed square foot kitchen gardens which last season grew lettuces, radishes, swiss chard, beans, carrots, mustard and more. There is also a butter garden (with many native species of flowers, grasses and shrubs) and a three sisters garden (from which our students are learning about our First Nations heritage). We have 3 categories of classes benefitting from this garden currently. They are meeting the school curriculum through work and studies about these gardens. The categories are; Biology (studing plant biology); Geography (studing biodiversity and sustainable communities) and our Community Living class (learning life skills through gardening).
We also are growing potatoes vertically in a barrel which we donate to the local food bank each year.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
