The Communities in Bloom group was at AB Greenwell Elementary School on Wednesday, April 18 getting the Grade 1, 2 and 3 students to help with putting together the planters that they will sell during Heritage Days in May. Most of the students were excited to put on the thin plastic gloves and get dirty, while a couple of the boys seemed more interested in showing the other kids how funny the gloves looked when they blew them up. This project will help raise funds for the school’s garden project.
Pat Foster of Communities in Bloom presented teacher Leanne Duteau with a cheque for $300 from the sale of the planters that the students helped with last year and were sold during Heritage Days in 2011. The money will be used for soil, plants and tools that the students will need when working in the school’s garden.
