Students and reacher with the veggie produce
Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

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.

Caledon East Public School students

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.


Our Humberview SS, Allan Dr. MS, Ellwood Memorial PS, Caledon East PS, Macville PS and Alloa PS gardens all contributed.

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.

Many more potatoes and tomatoes are still ripening at many of our gardens.

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.

And, lastly, many thanks to Caledon East’s Sean Davis and Amy Davis from Davis Feed & Farm and Glen Echo Nurseries for their generous support.

There’s more veggies to come…
