Spring is here! A new garden for Kanata Research Park Family Centre!

It seems like spring has been such a long time coming....we could barely contain our excitement when the school garden building season finally arrived! The newest addition to the Growing Up Organic family is the Kanata Research Park Family Centre, where it's tiny attendees now have a organic garden addition to their beautiful site thanks to their hard work (and a little help from dad!).

On Thursday, parent volunteers and staff at Kanata Research Park Family Centre set to work building three new raised beds for children in their pre-school program to enjoy. Little hands were eager to help!

When the soil arrived it was a very momentous occasion and captured everyone's attention! We didn't waste any time loading the new beds with mini-wheelbarrow loads of rich black soil, with lots of help from adults with big wheelbarrows too!  In a week or two it will be time for planting! Potatoes, sunflowers, beans, peas.....we can hardly wait!

Thank you to the parents, staff and children at KRPFC for a wonderful day building the first new garden of the season!
