With the help of very enthusiastic students and dedicated parent volunteers, Gaspereau Valley Elementary is revitalizing its school garden. Community and sustainability values are at the heart of this project, and will shape the evolution of the garden as it grows. When it came time to reach out to our local farming community for support, I approached Jeff McMahon at Longspell Farm to ask if he would be interested in donating manure and soil for the four new raised beds recently installed. Without hesitation he said yes! During one of the busiest times of the farming calendar, Jeff and a visiting friend showed up at the school on a Sunday with two loads of beautiful soil. Amazing! We would like to say a heartfelt thank you for believing in this project and helping it grow the hearts and minds of the next generation.
With Love, Jenna Alvis
