The Young Gardeners had the opportunity to work alongside the Algonquin Students.  They received hands-on sessions as well as guidance, advice and support from the ‘scholars’ gardeners.

The last few days have seen a lot of rain, which made our garden almost over ran with weeds, but thanks to the Green Star Youth and lots of help and support from our season gardeners they were able to clean up the plots, groom the crops that had been planted, and set the stage for a very successful garden season
