I went to see this project and I was amazed . To see in the middle of march on the Lower North Shore after one of the worst winters on record such beautiful green produce. We have as a community been working to try and get things on the go to diversify the economy and one of the projects is exactly this. Thank you to the students and Teacher Christopher Wong of Mecatina School for proving to us that this can be done .

Great project! never thought that this would be possible. Very impressive and I'm sure you must have developed a lot of skills that will be using for the rest of your lives.
I am so impressed with what you are doing. I wish I lived closer. I would definitely be a customer - especially for the fresh herbs! Way to go!!!
I am absolutely amazed by your project, in all my years at Mecatina School, I can easily say, this is a project that has generated excitement and hope in our school and our community. You are a genuine example of what an entrepreneur really is. Congratulations!
This is amazing! Congratulations! I will share with other teachers! You inspire us! Many thanks for all the time well spent by teachers and students!
Congratulations! This is a super cool venture. It's amazing how you'll designed, developed and implemented the project. Your community is very fortunate to have inspiring teachers and smart and motivated young people like you. I wish I could order herbs from you but you'd have to fly them to me (ironic right?) More power to you and hope your venture grows and prospers.
AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZIN! Love the pictures, love the project, love the veggies and herbs. Great job to you all. You should have won!! But really you guys did. Thanks so much.
What an awesome detailed project with a fantastic result !
It's so well done and you will see all the details and hard work the students have put in with their teacher Christopher Wong. The product is amazing and so tasty. Nothing beat that fresh vegetables in your salad !
The student also created de name and design the logo of the company. I really like the originality of it. Super cool.
I did grow some herbs, salad and pepper in the house and was successful with it but that project is many times better.
Congratulation to all and Bravo again.
We are so proud of you....It is simply amazing what you have accomplished! You have set the bar very high! Congratulations and thank you.
Congratulations Mecatina students! You are in a league all your own as student entrepreneurs. Wish you could deliver to Chevery... but keep up the great work and I'm 100% convinced that, in time, you will!
I ate two salads made with you lettuce ,basil, green onion, and a little dill,"because I like dill, it was amazing. Maybe some of you will continue growing your own herbs and veggies.
Hello there! I came across your GrEAU project and wanted to tell you how much I admire the work you are all doing. I did a little digging on your site and realized that you all are in a relatively small town where fresh produce isn't as readily available.
I want you to all know how instrumental your GrEAU project is. Your project is sustainable and builds capacity within your community. It's empowering and it's inspiring.
I don't live anywhere near you so unfortunately, I won't be able to try out some of your fresh produce (the pesto sauce looks amazing) but I wanted to send you all my well wishes. I plan to tell everyone I know about GrEAU.
Innovative! Dedicated! Outstanding efforts! Inspirational! Delicious! Awesome team!... There aren't enough words to describe your business and efforts... congratulations to all of you! Keep up the great work!
