BARRELS BLOOM

Anyone walking through downtown Beamsville will notice the incredibly beautiful wine barrel planters throughout the area. These barrels were decorated with designs from local wineries, by BDSS art students and planted with fresh greenery by our Specialist High Skills Major Horticulture students. The project was the result of an amazing collaboration between BDSS, the Beamsville BIA, seven local wineries and the Town of Lincoln – Thanks to Mr. Belding and Ms. Tauro and their students for bringing their talents to the project, which has become the Provincial Flagship Event for Gardens Canada!

POP UP KITCHEN @ THE BEAMSVILLE FARMERS MARKET

BDSS students brought their culinary talents to the Beamsville Farmers Market on June 9th, by creating a pop-up kitchen featuring locally grown ingredients. Under the leadership of Chef Claudio Marchese, our hospitality students created an array of delicious, healthy and locally grown dishes for market patrons to sample. Excellent work!
