Two years ago, the Chilliwack Board of Education approved the use of their Richardson Avenue property for an expansion of Sardis’ agricultural program.

On the five-acre farm, students will now be able to grow field crops, in addition to the flowers and indoor vegetables they already produce at the school’s greenhouse.
