École St. Catherine's Elementary School

School Garden

Garden Class Visites:

September 16th to 30th - classes visit the garden with 2 to 4 volunteers (classroom discussion, activities often support the garden visits) - volunteer sign up sheets to be posted on Thurs Sept 12th

- 2 volunteers are required for each of our 21 classes, no experience required but you must have both criminal record and child abuse registry checks with the school

- fresh vegetables are enjoyed by students during their garden visit

- vegetables that cannot be eaten straight out of the garden are harvested, processed and/or frozen and be used in our school kitchen (i.e. potatoes)

- zucchini is grated and frozen by grade 4 students (this frozen zucchini will be used by volunteers to bake 450 zucchini biscuits to go with our harvest lunch)
