St. Ignatius of Loyola CS joins Garden 2 Table

We are pleased to welcome St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic School to Garden 2 Table!

On May 30, the 26 seventh-graders spent the afternoon pulling thistles, laying straw paths and planting leeks at the GCUOF. The class from St. Ignatius joins students from Jean Little Public School as participants in the Garden 2 Table program.

Garden 2 Table enables children in the Guelph community to learn about food preparation and ecological agriculture. In the spring Garden 2 Table students plant crops at the GCUOF which they harvest and prepare into a meal in the fall.

Garden 2 Table is offered in partnership with the University of Guelph’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM).

Funding from the Youth for Sustainability contest has enabled us to extend our outreach and education programs and to serve a greater number of community members this year, including the group from St. Ignatius of Loyola CS.
