School Community Garden

image description

The Livingstone School Community Garden is open.  Students visiting the garden keep a physical distance of at least 2 metres from anyone outside of their family group to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

 The Student Garden Earth First group has  provided strong leadership in the garden.  They have worked and inspired other Livingstone students tp clear weeds, create a healthier environment for the orchard trees, and welcomed others to enjoying time in the garden at recess and lunch.  The "Mud Kitchen" is stocked with measuring tools and trucks for students wanting to create on a daily basis.  Dr. Art Bomke has donated two blueberry bushes from the Riley Park Garden and given lucky senior students a soil science lesson.  .    

PAC is funded the creation of Outdoor Learning backpacks to support the learning.  These were assembled by the Earth First Leadership team.  Ms. D's class installed a greenhouse made with hula hoops and plastic to protect our strawberries, kale and herbs.  Many students have come together to lay cardboard around orchard trees to kill the grass and added aged manure, compost and wood chips.  Purposeful and productive work that also doubles as a strategy to breathe, relax and make friends.
