You can grow your own food. We can help.

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.
