Community Garden Project

 

THE FKSS COMMUNITY GARDEN WOULD LOVE A DONATION OF YOUR TIME, ATTENTION, OR MONEY.

Please help us keep our garden viable over the summer by volunteering to help water the plants!  Follow this link to sign up!

 

The Placemaking Leadership classes, our TASK students, the Gardening class, the Environmental Club, in conjunction with community partners Kinsol Timber, the Malahat Nation, and with expertise from O.U.R. Ecovillage,  are working together. We have our district staff and trustees support. We are continually adding to what is becoming an amazing community garden.  It is a multi use space, for gardeners, our recycling program, and guests alike. But it will also stand as homage to our respect to the lands we live on.  

We are shaping this garden as a space for learning, and as a space our neighbors and community can walk through and enjoy. The new Thunderbird Pavilion offers shelter when we are working outside and we use the food grown in our cafeteria program when we are able.  A cobb oven has been added with help from some of our art students. A juicing bicycle is being discussed as a future addition.

We are looking for help from our community to continue this awesome work, as there are many components and other supplies our students need. 

Are you able to donate or offer expertise in an area that would further our goals? We are happy to accept any donation, big or small. For financial donations, our office has a debit machine and we also accept cash or cheques made out to Kelsey Secondary Community Garden. Donations over $15.00 receive a tax receipt.
