Thank you to all of the schools who applied for Youth Taking Root’s Secondary School Environment Project Funding. We would like to congratulate Westdale, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Guy B Brown Public School, Westview and Nora Henderson on receiving $100 for their environmental projects. Westdale is holding a “Spring in the Garden” event, where they will hold garden tours, showcase environmental organizations and sell school-made preserves and seedlings. Sacred Heart of Jesus is purchasing a composter for their playground to reduce the amount of organic waste being thrown out. Guy B Brown Public School is planting 5 native tree species around the school to encourage sustainability and promote diversity. Westview is planting a small garden around their office. Nora Henderson is greening their front yard as part of a breakout session of their “Speak Up” day. Youth Taking Root would like to thank IMPACT! The Co-operators Youth Program for Sustainability Leadership for providing us with the funding to make these grants possible.
