Track team trades treads for trowels

The Oak Bay High School Track and Field 14th annual Garden Compost Sale is a fundraiser for the Oak Bay Track and Field team.

Oak Bay High students want Oak Bay to get growing and they will provide the fuel.

“Almost 50 students are raising funds to travel and compete against other teams across North America,” said head coach Mike Sheffer.

The students are busy shoveling to get up to 9,000 bags of a well-aged combination of cow manure and garden compost ready for delivery between April 3 and 6.

“The students do all the selling and work over three days,” said Sheffer.

The Oak Bay High School Track and Field 14th annual Garden Compost Sale is a fundraiser for the Oak Bay Track and Field team.

“Last season (they) won the school’s 10th provincial championship in the last 13 years,” said Sheffer.

The team has an impressive record winning the Island Junior Championship for 24 consecutive years, the Island Senior Championship for 23 consecutive years and the Provincial Championships 10 of the last 12 years.

The high quality mix of yard compost and manure has been well ground and mixed and will be sourced locally to help Island businesses. The cost is $6 per bag or $25 for five bags. This includes the delivery of your prepaid order. Cheques should be made payable to Oak Bay Secondary School.

“All orders will be delivered to your home between April 3 and 6. The compost will be bagged in industrial quality plastic bags that can be re-used many times around your garden. They will be approximately 35 to 40 lbs. each,” said Sheffer.

If you are interested in ordering, email Sheffer at mwsheffer@hotmail.com or call 250-514-2599.

“Students are shovelling Apr. 3, 4, 5 so order soon as we always run out,” he said.
