SDSS Greenhouse Students and El Ibrahim family members

With the school year coming to a close and summer just around the corner, gardens are popping up everywhere.

One special garden is the one planted in the El Ibrahim family's backyard, Saugeen Shores Syrian refugee family.

Preparing the soil

The two eldest sons in the family -- Ibrahim and Mohammid -- joined the SDSS greenhouse class at the beginning of the year and have been a great addition to the team during projects.  

Amending the soil

Lead by Sarah Underwood, a student in the class, the entire greenhouse class was busy all week, making sure that the garden was prepped well, planting the many vegetables that were grown in the Saugeen Greenhouse (special requests were made by the family for many cucumbers), and overall just having a good time with the El Ibrahim family.

Tomato plantings

Great community projects cannot be completed without the support of community members such as the members of the fourth period Saugeen Greenhouse students and Canadian Tire. A special thank you to Mowbray's Canadian Tire for their generous donations of tomato cages, fertilizer, and seeds (especially the cucumber seeds).
