In the fall of 2016, we decided to turn the old outdoor arena into a community/school garden. That fall we received a tulip grant celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. At the opening ceremony of the garden we reflected on the quotation: “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow” from Audrey Hepburn. As a staff, we chose this quotation because we felt it was a symbol of hope for our school and community. Each year the different divisions of our school plant and harvest a garden. Several community members also have plots in our garden and help maintain the garden over the summer months. The produce from the school plots are put into our hot lunch program. 

Planting a garden works with our science program. Students learn about plants, seeds and roots along with what we need to keep our garden growing.
