Don't underestimate the power of a seed...
It’s hard to learn when all you think about is food. Food security has been an issue for students and families attending Normandeau School. Families in this school community face the most challenging socio-economic situations in our Division and community.
Building a Passive Solar Greenhouse provides a living classroom for teachers to apply traditional knowledge while teaching students practical life skills.
Produce grown in the greenhouse will support both the school nutrition program and food studies classes.
This greenhouse will have a significant research component, with leading edge building technologies. This is a sustainable, low impact and cost effective greenhouse targeting four seasons with solar technology.
Come Grow With Us will have lasting impacts on our students, our community and the broader greenhouse industry as we give student the tools and technology to take these skills into the future.
We are very excited to have this project come to life for the 2022/2023 school year.
