Plein Air at John Polanyi Collegiate – July 22, 2019

(Submitted by Wally Lush)

PACT Grow-to-Learn (GTL) teaches schools and communities about food and gardening. It feeds families and seniors in low-socioeconomic areas. It creates safe green spaces for pollinators and it transforms communities. This group was kind enough to allow 12 of us to invade their garden behind John Polanyi Collegiate to spend a few hours painting surrounded by growing veggies, flowers and a multitude of butterflies. It was a perfect day in a lovely, welcoming space.
