That Bloomin' Garden

Yesterday I attended the grand opening of the Ladner Elementary school garden. This school garden has exceeded everyone’s expectations. The community of Ladner really came together and everyone pitched in where they could. From shovelling soil to building a new shed and helping to transport the old garden from Kirkland House, so many volunteered to help out. It just shows you what a great community we have here in Delta.
