After months of energy, hard work, planning, and patience, at the end of the term students at Elliot Primary enjoyed refreshing smoothies, with ingredients as local as their own school grounds. To celebrate their community service day, they used kale harvested from their courtyard garden, along with other frozen fruits, and shared the healthy and tasty treat with the rest of the school.

The mandala veggie garden was planted in the fall, with help of Bermuda Institute students, and facilitated by Omari Dill and Chris Backeberg, thanks to support from PartnerRe. The Elliot Eco Club tended to the garden weekly and monitored the crops as they grew, learning to be patient and to observe the plants carefully, and sharing the harvest with members of the school as they progressed; the corn ended up taller than the students!

The school Eco-Club, led by science and P4 teacher, Toyra Woolridge, made their final harvest in June. They held the smoothie day to celebrate the harvest, and to engage and inform the wider school community, and students reported that kale smoothies were tasty, and a great reward for all their hard work.
