Thank you again to Stan Cameron, Caledon’s Peel District School Board Trustee, for this latest update and photos from the School Veggie Garden Project. There are 16 Caledon public schools taking part in the Vegetable Garden Project which is growing fresh vegetables in school gardens and donating them to needy families through The Exchange.
Last Friday, September 15th, many of our Caledon Public School Vegetable Gardens harvested more fresh veggies from their school gardens, for pick up and donation to The Exchange in Bolton. Once there, volunteers Ben & Varinder accepted and weighed our contribution.
An amazing 113 lbs of potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, beets, kale, lettuce, cucumber, rainbow Swiss chard, celery, beets, onions, green & yellow beans, peppers, and pie pumpkins were all part of this fresh harvest donation.
Thank you again to students and teachers who planted the seeds in the Spring and are now harvesting the growth in the Fall.
Thank you as well to parents for your help during the summer with watering & weeding.
There’s more veggies to come…
