Shakespeare in the Garden

Shakespeare in the Garden was a public event held at the Sutherland Schoolyard Market Garden in June. Several of community members and around 10 classes from Sutherland Secondary joined us despite the insane downpours!
William Shakespeare and his consort were in attendance reading sonnets and creating general goofy fun times. The Garden was decorated with inspirational garden quotes and info about sponsors, the building process, volunteer/community engagement and student involvement.  The EGP staff gave tours and answered questions. 

Shakespeare served lemon cake, soft pretzel buns, and ginger cookies and we sampled carrots, peas, kale, salad, radishes, salad turnips and strawberries, all grown at Sutherland.    Students went bonkers over carrots!!! Definitely the fave.  

Meet Emma! Our Summer Intern

My name is Emma and I am the Edible Garden Project’s summer intern! I just graduated from Carson Graham Secondary and in the fall, I will be attending SFU to study environmental resource management and sustainability. I am excited to be getting to work with the EGP this summer as I want to gain more knowledge on growing food especially in urban areas and the ways that the EGP does more
