The last Ward 15 Council meeting for the school year is coming up on Tuesday, June 9, 7pm at Eastdale (Gerrard and Degrassi). Eastdale has a special story to share, and Principal Martha Bartley will tell us all about what makes the school unique.
Krista Wylie, from the small but mighty parent-led campaign FIX OUR SCHOOLS will be joining us. Ever wonder why it sometimes takes so loooong to get the most basic repairs done in your school? Tired of buckets catching drips in the hall, or cold classrooms in winter? Krista will talk about how we got into this mess, and how we get ourselves out of it.
Another highlight of the evening will be a roundtable discussion on school gardens and greening projects. Does your school have a garden project on the go or a greening project in the works? Come share your problems and tips. Eastdale’s rooftop food garden, a partnership with FoodShare, will serve as the backdrop for our discussion.
Childcare and light refreshments provided.
I hope to see you there!
