Community Orchard/ Expansion Project

School: Windermere Community Secondary

Votes Received: 294

Inspired youth at Windermere seek to expand our garden and create a small urban farm and fruit orchard that will act as a hybrid school/ community garden. We aspire to significantly increase our current food yield with a goal of achieving 25% food contribution to school meals. Through unique and creative concepts developed in collaboration with students and various community partners, our expanded garden will maximize the use and ecological impact of the green space.
