Our vision for Canada is… We will be planting a fruit tree in the courtyard of our school. The trees will provide fresh locally produced fruit for students. Students who participate in the breakfast and lunch programs, will have an opportunity to enjoy fresh apples, plums and/or a delicious snack/meal made with the fruit.
We will purchase fruit trees from Home Depot because they have offered to sell it at a reduced cost. Students will plant the trees in the courtyard and ensure that the trees are maintained and cared for. Fresh food is an important part of a balanced diet and students will enjoy the fruit that has been grown in their own courtyard. When there is ample fruit, it will be shared with the foods programs in our school, along with our school community.
