The Garden at Oaklands School

Growing Young Farmers Society at the Oaklands School Garden!

Victoria is known as The Garden City. Butchart, Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, Beacon Hill Park and Government House are just a few. These are amazing gardens, but our favorite gardens are all edible! Exactly how does a garden grow? How do we know what to grow in our gardens and when? Meet Dave Friend a.k.a. Mr. Organic.

Dave approached us about working with the Growing Young Farmers Society. We were excited – what a great fit! GYFS combines classroom teaching with hands on learning in school and community gardens. The program emphasizes the importance of local, organic, sustainable food sources.  More importantly, it teaches children and youth how to grow healthy produce and share their knowledge with their families and community.

We’re excited to be working with Dave and helping support Oaklands School. Stay tuned! There’s sure to be more – we’re hoping for some vegetables for pizza!
