Garden2Table played host to three Grade 4 classes from Chris Hadfield Public School in Milton in June. The students enjoyed time at the Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming (GCUOF), planting watermelon seeds, sunflower seeds, and building a straw path from one end of the garden to the other.
One of the classes - Mr. Ford’s 4.2 - had the rare opportunity to spend a morning with beekeeper Paul Kelly at the University of Guelph Apiary (bee yard). Partnering with Chris Hadfield P.S. marks the first time that Garden2Table has worked with a school outside of Guelph - something we hope to do more of in the future.
Stay tuned for more visits this fall!
