Blueberry Creek Community School would like to thank the Telus and Katimavik crews who, along with some staff and neighbours, turned sod for the new Butterflies and Berries project underway at the school. They were a tremendous help with the hard work necessary to put the raised beds in place.  The Butterflies and Berries project involves 14 raised beds containing edible berries and native pollinator promoting plants distributed around the school grounds. A grape arbour and outdoor space will complete the project. The project has been made possible by grants from Columbia Basin Trust, and very generous contributions from City of Castlegar, Columbia Valley Green House, Kalesnikoff Lumber and  Communities in Bloom.  Work will continue over the next few weeks, with opportunities for all interested in participating.
