A financial donation from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley has assisted the Bowsman Garden Club with maintaining, improving and expanding their program. They now have a new garden shed in which to store their tools at the end of the season. With the expansion of their garden boxes, they hope to double or triple their produce at the end of the growing season.

The enthusiastic students ask residents to check out the garden area and to help themselves to a taste of their gardening talents. Without support from the local foundation, Principal Paula Shevernoha stresses that their worthwhile project would not have been possible.
