Growing at the Garden

Welcome back, Students!
The 2012-2013 school year is about to begin.  
We are so excited for the possibilities of growth this year.  We see our garden as a place for big dreams and the joy of witnessing the miracle of new life.  We see growing leaps and bounds this year with you, join the journey!

GreenTeam Hike

GreenTeam loves to hike.  It is a dramatic way to turn off the distractions of the world and tune into some serious body and soul time.  Being able to walk, one foot in front of the other, is a blessing in itself from God and we appreciate this more by experiencing it, along with fun and fellowship alongside our friends.
We would like to extend the welcome to our whole community to join us on future hikes during the school year.
Learn more about all our upcoming events, like a GT Hike, for the 2012-2013 school year by stopping to chat with us at New Student Orientation Waves Expo or email us directly.

"I remember well the labour of love it was to build the garden.  It was terrific then and terrific now." -Emilyrose
