What are your future goals?
My future goal is to supply the school kitchen with fresh vegetables, to have a well maintained garden throughout the garden season. To create a nature/play scape garden on our playground. To have more of a community garden and involve others.

What is your most significant need?
At this moment our needs would be more adult volunteers, more tools, a load of loam, materials to build some more raised beds, some fencing. This list could go on!

Any other comments?
We have had a school garden that has been tended by the recess kids and an afterschool group and managed by myself. This year we are really focusing on going green so there is a renewed interest in our garden area. COmposting has just begun and we are in the learning stages with this using some bins and a tumbler to compost our fruit and veggie waste.
