Delta School District

By BYCOOP admin - Posted on 21 November 2012

Great meeting with Delta School Districts superintendents council today.
They are enthusiastic to move ahead with Project Pickle and keep district kids in touch with horticulture in the schoolyard and in the backyard.
District 37 is truly germinating new ideas in school farm neighbourhoods.
Soon, all schools in the district will have the opportunity to grow, share and trade.
See what one of these schools is doing in the attached newsletter.

Once the kids, the parents and the school neighbourhoods in general understand the efficiencies of land management in relation to food production we think that there will be buy in to the "Hort in the Hood" programs.

It seems to make sense to use school lands as a compliment to playing fields etc. I wish there was something like that when I was growing up. I hope the kids appreciate it!
