Students lend hand decorating Ocean Park Community Orchard shed

Grade 1-2 classes from Ocean Cliff Elementary at South Surrey garden Friday.

The Ocean Park Community Orchard has received a wave of student support.

On Friday morning, Grade 1 and 2 students – accompanied by teachers and parents – from nearby Ocean Cliff Elementary were at the South Surrey garden space ( 12815 22 Ave.) to help decorate a cob shed – a structure made of wood and dried mud that was built by members of the orchard community.

On Friday, led by members of the Mudgirls Collective, students took small rocks – which they’d painted blue earlier in the week – and stuck them into mud that had been spread on the side of the shed in a wave pattern.

Further decorating efforts are expected to continue throughout the weekend; on Saturday, members of the orchard’s ‘community team’ will be on site, and Sunday, members of the scouts will come by to lend a hand.

The decorating of the shed is paid for by a City of Surrey neighbourhood enhancement grant.
