Quick event update with Project Reclaim
Many of you know that Project Reclaim has been working in the Saanich reserve. Doing land restoration work and, working with youth from the community, in the beginning of August we had a couple events focusing on getting kids from HELEMITE involved as we got the kids to help plant and transplant flowers, raspberries, strawberries, and kale. The event was a success as the kids enjoyed helping plant and water the garden bed.
Another one of the events we had were focused on teaching the kids about garbage disposal and recycling, we played a game, where you had to organize garbage, to compost, to recycling as we might be getting garbage cans at the HELEMITE park. For both events we provided cookies, juice, and fruit trays. For both events we had a good turn out, around 8-10 kids for both event.
