Eleanor Woitowicz, and Bonnie Monias, both teachers at Mel Johnson School, in Wabowden, Northern Manitoba are literally breaking new ground in education and are growing a healthier community in the process. Over the past 4 years the teachers have established 58 small vegetable gardens right in their students’ backyards.
This documentary film follows the teachers and their students for a season of seeding, planting, harvesting, preserving and ultimately celebration of the fruits of their labour at the school’s annual community harvest display and feast.
A reception will follow the screening of the film, with a performance by the Mel Johnson School Fiddlers. Teachers & students will be in attendance.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 8th.
