Multicultural Vegetable Garden
This program will involve the clearing, redesigning and rejuvenation of an existing vegetable garden within the school grounds. Students will be involved with the design of the gardens and any subsequent maintenance. The garden will then be used as an outdoor learning space for all students, partly those studying Horticulture through the VCAL. Vegetables from the garden will be used by the whole school community in our garden kitchen. The program aims to expand culinary horizons and life skills.
The total project cost is $1 000.00
The major costs associated with the project are
Item 1- Seeds $300
