Building a Water Bottle Greenhouse and Pinwheel OrchardMilton, Ontario
Design, Visual Arts — Collective Creation
Both adults and children will help build a 10’ X 8’ greenhouse made entirely out of recycled water bottles next to the Community Garden. Expert educational program coordinators, Crash Rhythm, local artists, Country Heritage Park’s volunteers, and CHP’s Agricultural Society’s Ambassador will all be on hand to assist in this project and provide all with the total “food and farming” experience. Community members can provide a helping hand well enjoying a free bucket drumming workshop from Crash Rhythm and create their own pinwheel that will be displayed in our Community Garden. Country Heritage Park is like a moving picture show of the past 150 years – and we hope that you enjoy the opportunity to create your own memories.

Country Heritage Park
Country Heritage Park (CHP) provides a unique link, creating a rural-urban bridge that connects schools, families, and residents throughout Ontario with food and farming. An integrated teaching garden, culinary and experiential education program are developing components of a Food Literacy program focused on where and why to buy local food and experiential links to healthy eating, the environment and the future of food and farming.
