    It’s great to have found you, Foodshare!

    Our school garden connected with our local food bank last summer when we ran a Garden Daycamp and made countertop herb planters for food bank recipients.

    Our first year of growing went into a whole school harvest potluck luncheon (with each class cooking and bringing something they’d grown in their own garden plot). The gym was filled with delighted children!

    A province-wide teachers’ strike fouled up our second year of gardening. It turned out I hadn’t yet convinced my colleagues that gardening and food growing are part of the curriculum, so they saw the school garden as “extracurricular.”

    But that worked out, too … my class harvested the veggies and we made soup for the whole school and asked for donations. We then extended the leftovers and held a community event – Soup for Somalia – in a local church hall and raised nearly $500.

    We’ll look forward to becoming a Foodshare Donation Station!
