Students at Brebeuf College School in Willowdale, Ontario, were inspired to create more green spaces to connect with nature on school grounds. Brebeuf’s Ecology and Garden Clubs worked together to introduce native, drought-tolerant perennials that would provide nectar, pollen, seed and places to lay eggs for the native pollinators on school grounds. A Go Wild success, the resulting garden is dominated by Coneflowers, Bee Balm, Black-eyed Susan, Phlox, and Butterfly weed.
“Hard work truly pays off as the plants we take ownership of eventually grow into beautiful flowers.”
– Brendan, Grade 9
