Forever Green Landscaping & Maintenance Donates to Montclair Public School in Oakville

Published by

Forevergreen Landscaping and Maintenance Inc., in Oakville, has graciously donated several trees and shrubs to our school to assist with revitalizing our Outdoor Learning Garden located in the courtyard. Forevergreen provided several lilac and maple trees and a variety of shrubs. Our whole school community has been involved in revitalizing our Montclair Learning Garden. Thank you so much for your generosity, Forevergreen!

Montclair Public School is one of the five schools in the Halton District School Board that is fortunate to have a courtyard within its school grounds. Our Montclair Learning Garden is being revitalized as the students are helping to grow grass seeds and transplant the grass in the courtyard, planting vines which will grow up the recently installed trellis, to weeding areas to start a pollinating garden filled with wildflower seeds that are native to Ontario, and creating a bug hotel. We even have several of our students, from wee Junior Kindergarten children to Grade 8’s, responsible for watering the gardens daily, transporting several cubic yards of mulch and soil into the courtyard, building and creating plant signs using design and tech tools, assisting with building the garden shed and sanding the wooden logs to provide seating for our outdoor learning classroom.

We are very fortunate to have all of our Grade 8 students using wheel barrows borrowed from White Oaks Secondary School to transport soil and mulch. They are also laying clover seed over the grass, taking out large roots and digging big holes to plant the trees and shrubs.

Our head custodian, Mr. Jowett, will build a chalkboard stand to provide classes and small groups the opportunity to learn outside. He also designed a windchime made out of recycled copper from scrap material. Mr. Jowett has also installed the bee pollinating house and an eavestrough so rainwater will collect in our rain barrel.

We are very appreciative of the support and kindness from Forevergreen Landscaping and Maintenance Ltd., as the foliage and greenery will provide shade to some areas, and the shrubs will compliment the area around the Pollinating Garden, Herb Garden and Vegetable Gardens.

Thank you, Forevergreen, for the generous donation!
