During the Spring and Summer of 2011, Argyle Alternative High School students and staff constructed an elevated vegetable/herb garden in its Outdoor Classroom which is being used by the school’s community members.   A portion of the garden was constructed using “recycled” wood which was obtained from Argyle’s local community.

Funding for the project was provided by WWF Canada – Green CommUnity School Grants Program.

Please view the following pictures which shows a progression of the construction of the garden:
