Who are we

Who are we?

  • Our Green Team is made up of students from Kindergarten to Grade 7, a teacher volunteer, and a member from the local agricultural society. They meet weekly to work on this food growing project.


What do we do each week

What do we do each week?

  • -plant seeds on trays and put them on the germination table

  • -water and learn to care for the plants

  • -watch for seeds sprouting

  • -transplant small plants from the trays into larger pots and move them onto the greenhouse shelf. When the weather warms up, they’ll go into the outdoor greenhouse.

  • -learn about the plants and ways to use them

  • -use worm juice from the compost bin to fertilize the plants and learn other organic and sustainable ways to garden

  • -plan who will take the plants to the local farmer’s market to sell to raise more funds to continue this growing project!


What do we want to do in the future

What do we want to do in the future?
