Organic Gardening at Discovery Child Care

 The Backyard Urban Farm Company came to visit the kindergarten children at Discovery Child Care and helped us put in our organic gardening beds. Thank you Arlene & Carrie!

We've planted 3 of our 5 gardening beds with Tomatoes, Marigolds (or as the children call them "miracles"), peppers, fennel, basil, dill and so much more.

The children are excited to help out and see the plants grow!

Here's some information about the Backyard Urban Farm Company.

"BUFCO is dedicated to participating in a worldwide food movement that encourages lowering our carbon footprint and trying to live more sustainably, naturally, independently and locally. Planting and saving heirloom and non-GMO seeds (genetically modified organisms), and preserving the harvest are top priorities for us. We strive to build a sense of community by facilitating sharing a portion of the harvest with our neighbours and local food banks. We bring new opportunities for families and individuals to learn, teach, relax, play in and eat from their own gardens. We believe that by tending our garden, we feed our minds, bodies and souls, and contribute to the greater good."

At Discovery Child Care, in Barrie Ontario, we believe in the importance of connecting children with nature. Contact Us to find out more about our eco-friendly child care facility and our nature programs.
