An innovative seed saving program keeps growing

On October 8, students from Devonshire Community Public School hosted guests from across Canada and the United States as part of the North American Association for Environmental Education conference, taking place in Ottawa this week.

Students showed visitors their “Itty Bitty Garden in the City,” a school growing and seed saving project facilitated by Growing Up Organic and USC Canada. The garden is in its fourth year at the school, and has been inspiring art, song writing, science, and literacy projects, as well as allowing students to learn first hand about local food production.
