Daphne Van Alstine’s Grade 4 class received a Healthy Schools grant to plan and deliver a salad bar day for students and staff at South Nelson elementary.
Leading up to this Go Greens Day the class visited the Lakeside greenhouse and helped harvest the greens.
Students learned from the volunteer senior citizens about planting, caring for and growing greens.
In preparation for the salad bar/Go Greens Day, students presented an informative assembly to the school community.
During a typical week the volunteers at Lakeside Greenhouses harvest and donate bags of mixed greens to the local food cupboard and other local programs.
This week students helped with the harvest, included the greens in the salad bar and accepted cash donations to give back to the greenhouses.
Student presented $175 to the SEEDS program.
