Belgravia Ever Active is proud to partner, for a second year, with Billyco Junction Gardens in Lacombe, AB to offer your family fresh vegetables (15 weeks) and fruit (8 weeks) on a weekly basis. Bill and Edie Biel have four grandchildren who attend our school. We are very appreciative of their financial support of our health promoting school program through this fundraiser.
Due to your feedback, a summer sampler option (4 weeks) has been added this year! This will offer some flexibility for those who are traveling or for those with their own gardens who may want to take advantage of Billyco’s early produce.
Billyco Junction’s produce is grown naturally without the use of harmful chemicals or sprays. Their fruits and vegetables are harvested shortly before delivery to our neighbourhood. Delivery begins in the early summer. Last year’s drop-off location was 119 St. and 71A Ave. See www.billycojunction.com for more information.
Last year this fundraiser allowed us to raise over $900, making our Ever Active program completely sustainable! Some initiatives, funded by this money, include a monthly apple snack for our students and staff, a class set of compasses for orienteering, the purchase of health promoting books for our school library, and a curling experience at Saville.
Order forms are included in this edition of the Belgravian. You can also download them here (Summer Sample Share 2014 and School and Group fund raiser form CSA 2014).
