CCLC visit – first of the 2011 season!

Today we had our first visit from a class from the Child Care and Learning Centre (CCLC)!

The CCLC have been involved with the GCUOF since the project began. Children between the ages of one and a half and five years visit the GCUOF regularly during the growing season. Many CCLC children have grown to think of the GCUOF as “their garden!”

Today, the children and their teachers came prepared for the rainy weather wearing raincoats and boots. Their visit brought a burst of colour to an otherwise grey day. The children investigated some of our compost, checked up on recently sown radishes and were introduced to Harry, the greenhouse’s resident toad.

Thanks to the efforts of our dedicated volunteers the GCUOF is the recipient of funding from last fall’s Youth for Sustainability contest which will support the outreach and education program that serves the CCLC.

We look forward to many more visits from CCLC children this season!

    Very cute! Hope everyone enjoyed their visit. Seems like a very valuable learning initiative for those children.
