Despite the questionable early morning weather, plans to build the garden beds persevered. By 9:00 am, we had a healthy number of eager parent, community and Bridgehead volunteers bustling with energy and ready to dig in.
Once the ceremonial petunia song kicked off the morning, working groups broke off and the busy work began...furiously as each group was responsible for assembling a garden bed.
A BIG thank you to all the parent volunteers who made it out and spent the day to make this idea become a reality. The parent volunteers were and are extremely enthusiastic about the new space which will enrich the learning and community environment. Props to Luc Nugent, a parent volunteer who has spent countless hours prepping for this day and allowing GUO to work with Trillium/Trille Des Bois towards a common vision. Also, a number of Bridgehead staff came and conquered...the drill and power saw to construct a beautiful garden bed. Always with a smile, they are definitely a fun bunch to work with.
Lastly, we'd like to thank our lovely farmers:
