To have the children involved in planting a herb garden and to learn about locally grown products and aboriginal teachings.
We have begun to grow herbs in our classroom that will be transferred to our community herb garden. The kindergarten classroom and junior grades are joining together to build and maintain the gardens. A local business has offered to maintain the gardens over the summer and use the herbs for their business. The business supports locally grown produce and has been involved in other projects with the junior grades around the topic of sustainability and fair trade products.
