Thanks to our Parent Council, Greely Road School was able to purchase two Tower Gardens in the Fall of 2016. Our Tower Gardens will be growing various vegetables throughout the school year. Students in Grade 4 and our VIP class planted vegetables and when the seedlings have sprouted they were placed in the Tower Gardens at the front of the school so the community can wach them grow. Our goal is for each class to recieve a health salad, kale chips and sauted rainbow chard and bok choy. As well, we want students to have a better understanding of how plants mature and what a plant needs to grow. We are very excited about this community project and will keep families updated on the development of our project.
