September 23, 2013 - Staff and students at St. David Catholic Elementary School continue to embrace the outdoor classroom concept. Last June, the primary grade teachers and their students planted a crop of tomatoes in large planters around the school yard as well as in the gardens at Victory Park. During the warm summer months, the Better Beginnings Better Futures summer program took care of the garden boxes by weeding and watering the vegetables. This September, St. David School students were able to harvest their tomatoes.

"The students were so excited to be able to hand pick tomatoes they had grown themselves. We are very grateful for the support Mike from DEWCAN gave the students. It is wonderful when community helpers actively participate in school activities. I am very proud of their initiative and their excitement. The positive energy was contagious", stated Terri Lynn Lepage, St. David School grade 3 teacher. The next step for these little grade 3 farmers will be preparing a home cooked healthy pasta meal using their own tomatoes in the sauce."
