SSPP Edible Schoolyard
SSPP started a school garden in Spring 2012, with the aim in mind that all our children will participate in growing healthy produce – and even learn how to create delicious meals with the food they have grown!
This will offer our children a hands-on, educational experience in the natural environment, while being taught about nutrition, health, cooking and agriculture.
Besides learning how to grow food, the will also come to appreciate the flavors of vegetables and gain knowledge to make good choices for their own nutrition.
We are always seeking volunteers to join the SSPP Edible Schoolyard Committee, to help us in the ongoing planning and execution of the vision of an Edible Schoolyard program at SSPP. We are looking for any adult affiliated with the school or church, who have even a tiny bit of understanding of gardening, a passion for food, a talent for cooking, and also those who have time, talent or treasure to offer.
For reference of what we have in mind, please see:
