I love the idea of using shoe bags for planting. I was thinking of hanging them of fence.

Meanwhile, we can also bring buckets from inside but that would have to be a short term solution. – Weather: Weather in New Brunswick is pretty rough and it saddens me that the best months for gardening are usually when school is over but we could plant things like pumpkins and apple trees since those are usually ready in the fall. Still not sure who would take care of the garden during the summer months but I’m sure I’ll be able to find some volunteers. Also, we could do a container garden that we could bring inside when the weather is not cooperating. – Vandalism: Sadly, our school is often subject to vandalism. It makes me nervous to think that we could all work so hard to create an amazing outdoor space and that it could get vandalised. Again, I’m thinking of container gardens that we could bring inside during weekends… I don’t want to let that fear stop me though. Maybe we could also put up a fence with a locked gate to get in? That would involve a much bigger budget but it’s still something to consider. Victoria Hackett April 16, 2018 Log in to Reply Fantastic brainstorming. I like the fact that you are not letting some of these challenges in the way of your thinking. Way to go! Make a challenge into an opportunity. Awesome job!
