Submitted by Bobbi-Lee Chatelaine-Welcome back to school! We are ready to go here at the L&L with a bucket-full of new adventures planned for this up-coming school year.For those of you islanders out of the loop, the Living and Learning school is an independent, parent-run school located in Queen Charlotte that focuses on social and environmental responsibility.This year we have started a new program called Farm to School. Every Wednesday the children will have a lunch prepared at the school. Produce from Riverworks Farm will be the basis and the children will participate in the making of the meal while also gaining some learning experience from the opportunity. Later in the month the children will be visiting Riverworks Farm in Tlell to further their understanding of locally-raised foods and how our food grows.This is just one of the highlights of the month! The L&L has a trip to Fantasy Island planned for another food/growing opportunity to visit George of Island Joe Tomatoes. Mushrooms are out and about so one of these Mondays they will be off harvesting some local chanterelles and gaining valuable forest and food knowledge. These are just a few of the planned trips for the year. We will continue to share our experiences and adventures as the year continues.The Living and Learning School will be at the movie night on Sept. 22, from 7-9 pm, at the Charlotte community hall, with a very yummy concession: popcorn and baked treats! Come out for a great family movie and support the school with the purchase of some tasty food while you watch.Check out our website and our Facebook page for more information and more photos, livingandlearningschool.org.
