FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northern Environmental Action Team is looking for a water tank for Robert Ogilvie School.

900 students from 3 schools participate in building gardens at their local schools.The students participate in the Food Secure Kids program which is a k-6 food security program.


Duncan Cran and Central are fine for water and have tanks. However, Robert Ogilvie does not. NEAT is asking for a donation of a water tank from the public.

Karen Mason-Bennett, program coordinator of NEAT, says a tank will help make things easier.

“Each of the schools has a garden that we built with help from the community on site. Students have planted seedlings that will be transplanted out into these beds shortly. We have water to water the plants secured at Central and Duncan Cran, but are in need of a storage container for Robert Ogilvie. This just makes watering easier.”

They also are asking for water fills for the tanks during the summer.

If you would like to help, you can contact NEAT at 250-785-6328.
