A HUGE thank you to the Millarville Community School Families & Teachers, Permaculture Calgary Guild Members, and Luke & Jordan (former MCS Student) of the Leaf Ninjas, who came out to help install an important feature in our future food forest, garden, and outdoor learning space – Water Harvesting and Distribution Swales! Water is integral in any planting system and requires accurate measurements to be successful. We can’t express enough our gratitude for your hard work and dedication. We moved a lot of earth and dug 250 feet of swales. Phewf… Job well done everyone! Stay tuned for the next steps in this legacy project.
