Granny’s Edible School Yard
Students from Joe A Ross School and Opaskwayak Cree Nation members will implement garden boxes near the school grounds, OCN’s new health building, and new high school. We hope that this project will hopefully give our community a vision and play a huge part in becoming actively involved in creating healthy lifestyles for our children of the future. Students will also be taught how to make healthy meals and learn the role that nutrition plays in achieving a healthy lifestyle. The idea is to educate the students hoping that they in return will educate members of their family and positively impact community health and nutrition. A community garden was started two years ago in the community, however the garden is a long distance out of the community, creating a barrier.
