Tower Gardens In the Humber-Downsview Schools

The Humber-Downsview region of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge granted 5 area schools (i.e. Elia Middle School, Driftwood PS, Firgrove PS, St Jude CS, and Calico PS), 2 EYC (e.i. Jane Finch Community and Family Centre, Delta Family Resource Centre) and 1 Childcare (York University Childcare) with tower gardens. On Thursday, November 23 , a workshop on tower garden assembly and maintenance was delivered to these schools and organizations at FoodShare.
