Fall School Gardening

Had a beautiful day in the Britannia Secondary School garden today with herbalist Lori Snyder who shared with us her plant knowledge. Also showed us how to make cedar hydrosol, much like an aromatherapy. Also cleaned up the garden, harvested some parsnips which we brought over to the school cafeteria, pruned the raspberries, covered the beds with leaf mulch in preparation for the winter, and planted some more native plants including Lingonberry, Evergreen Huckleberry, Nootka Rose, Thimbleberry, and Red and Black Currant in the šxʷqʷeləwən ct Carving Centre garden.
