We Day Toronto

Congratulations to the 2018-19 Trillium School Garden initiative, spearheaded by teachers Wendy Farkas and Kevin Pickett!

Today, the producer of the 2019 Toronto We Day event called and asked Wendy, Kevin and several students to appear on stage for an interview about their School Garden project. 

The School Garden was a part of the afternoon cross-curricular program which blended strands of science, environmental science, ecology, math, health, construction technology, accounting, business, etc. Students even went so far as to re-purpose shipping pallets by deconstructing and rebuilding them into wooden planting boxes!

The opportunity to be a part of We Day was already a great opportunity, but to be a part of the program lineup was totally unexpected!

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2018-19 School Garden Project, whether it be by sharing skills or by donating products!
