Pourquoi visiter LendrumRoss Farm?
Les élèves peuvent rencontrer un petit troupeau de chèvres qui aiment bien se faire nourrir et flatter et des poules qui pondent une belle variété d’oeufs. Visitez nos jardins, examinez le compost, et plantez des graines pour les élever à la maison. Passez du temps dans la nature et sur la plage au bord du Lac Laberge.

Why visit Wheaton River Gardens?
Wheaton River Gardens is a working example of nature’s circles: animal waste to compost to gardens to animal and people food. It is a chance to meet a community of animals and people that live together and depend on each other for well being. It is an exploration of working with nature as our guide, and trying to be respectful of the needs of the planet as well.
