How was it done?
The Adair family and Reel Gardening set to expand their existing vegetable garden. A larger, organic garden was developed to allow the school to feed more children healthy, nutritious meals as part of their school feeding scheme but would also make their garden a sustainable asset. The school’s grounds staff as well as a natural sciences teacher and her Grade 6 class underwent the Reel Life training such that they were equipped with the knowledge to care for and maintain their new garden.
