Jack Layton Award | Runner-Up
Our vision is to expand our knowledge and experience of gardening to our elementary school, Nootka. Our secondary school, Windermere, is already involved with this elementary school by having after school clubs for interested children. Nootka is already interested in starting up a garden, and as our project we decided to tackle their garden and assist them with it.
Build gardening beds where crops will be planted and grown. Start a compost bin where organic waste can be broken down into soil and used as soil for the plants (sustainable cycle). Engage students/parents from the school or even community to learn the importance of eating locally grown foods and benefits of organic food.
