Classroom Garden

Map pinWinnipeg, Manitoba

We would like to purchase indoor grow light gardens for two primary classrooms at Meadows West School.  Over the fall and winter, the children will experience planting herbs, caring for them as they grow and then harvest and cook with them.  In the spring, they will plant veggies to take home and transplant in their home garden.  They will learn about the benefits of growing your own food, as opposed to purchasing food from big grocery stores.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
