Fort Langley Lions give students’ greenhouse major boost

The foundation for a future eco-friendly greenhouse in Fort Langley has been planted, thanks to a generous donation by the Village’s Lions Club.

On Friday morning, June 5, Fort Langley Lions Club members presented a cheque to the Langley Fine Arts School’s Green Team for their greenhouse.

In total, the club is donating $3,500 to the project.

The cheque presentation was at the future site of the greenhouse – the community garden plots at the north end of Fort Langley Community Park.

The purpose of the 12-by-8 sq. foot cedar greenhouse is to support year-long sustainability in Fort Langley, and to provide seedlings to the community garden members.

Construction is expected to start in late July.

Each year, roughly 330 Langley Fine Arts students are involved in the school’s garden program.

In the community, gardeners range in age from 8 to 90 and have been using the 42 garden boxes as a source of recreation and education.

The garden also promotes eco-friendly waste disposal, as well as the education of elementary school students regarding healthy lifestyles and healthy eating.
