On the ground learning
R.C. Garnett students Emily Veerman, Grade 4, and Jessica Baldwin, Grade 3, hunt for plant species at Maples Discovery Gardens. Veerman and her Grade 4/5 classmates come to the community garden every two weeks to work on the R.C. Garnett plot as part of a “Natures Classroom” project. The girls on May 8 joined students from five different schools in a fish release of 5,000 salmon at Latimer Creek, which flows through the Maples property.
