Kinnikinnick Elementary School has been fortunate enough to have had a small garden for six years. The original garden was created in 2012 through donations from the community, most notably from Salish Soil.  Through the generous grant supplied by the Farm to School Organization in 2018, we are making plans to enlarge the existing site to accommodate sufficient garden space for every class, provide space for plants significant to the First Nations culture of the Sechelt People, and create an outdoor classroom where students can access learning through hands-on experiences. Working collaboratively with parents, teachers, school, and district staff we have developed a plan to implement this vision in several stages. This winter we will begin to enlarge the fenced area surrounding the original garden with construction support generated through community volunteers. Once the fence has been completed, we will begin redesigning the existing layout of the gardens beds and spaces to reflect the vision of the students at our school. Our garden will be a lasting legacy to our schools commitment to fostering a love and appreciation for our natural environment.
