Our main tasks today in the garden was to aerate the compost, pull weeds and dead plants for composting, seeding cover crops and nitrogen fixing plants, adding leaves for winter protection and erosion control, harvesting potatoes and leeks, and planting garlic. This week we will make potato salad and potato leek soup with our bounty!

After our return from the bowling tournament we had our annual visit from Vancouver Canucks Rod Brathwaite (Manager, Community Partnerships & Hockey Development). Rod was joined this time by Alfred De Vera (Media Relations) who was eager to meet and speak with our students.

They left us with a gift of box seats for Dec. 26th game against the Edmonton Oilers. Thank you Canucks for this great opportunity!

Cycling at the Burnaby Velodrome

October 31, 2015 Leave a comment

On Thursday our students had the fantastic opportunity to try their hand at the sport of cycling on a velodrome track. There wasn’t anyone in the Streetfront class (students and staff included) who could say they were not intimidated by this sport that sees one cycling around a track that had up to 47 degrees in pitch! We would like to thank Nikki from Urban Native Youth Association and Michael from Burnaby Veldrome for giving us this opportunity and expert guidance. We hope to return soon to this wonderful sport.

Thyme in the Garden

We had our first session in the garden this school year with Ian (Britannia Food Security Co-ordinator) and Matthew (Environmental Youth Alliance) who guided us through the importance of seed collection. We learnt many cool facts about seeds like the majority of our food plants require human intervention for propagation and have lost the capability of doing it naturally; the existence of heritage seed banks; how to harvest and store seeds for planting the next year to name a few.
