General Vanier: Log Bench Project

Last Thursday, Green Club had an exciting delivery at General Vanier: 6 large logs that will be used to create log benches for an outdoor classroom adjacent to the garden in front of the school.

The logs were brought by a team from the local council, dumped from the back of a large truck and then moved into place with a bulldozer, they were so heavy!

The team said the logs were from a Norwegian Maple tree that had been cut down locally, likely due to being diseased, or dead. Thanks to Julie from Eco Quartier who helped source the logs. It feels good to know that the schoolyard garden will be made with local, recycled wood. Stay tuned for more updates!
