Community Garden Tied to Entire Curriculum

Keephills School has grown quite the reputation for its awesome GROW project.  Led by parent and Stony Plain Horticulture Society member, Karen Berglund, and supported by Principal Aileen Wagner, the community garden is a project that involves children, youth, parents, and community members.  The project has been supported for over 5 years because of the help of TransAlta and Parkland County.  The students learn how to cultivate, care for, and prepare the various garden items located right outside of their classrooms.  The GROW program is integrated to all grade levels and subjects throughout the K-9 school.
