“The Foundation is contributing to a generation of students becoming lifelong learners around ecological and food literacy. Students now have the opportunity to participate in the seed-to-table cycle and to learn where their food comes from and how it is prepared. The more students are exposed to these concepts and experience the process with hands-on learning, the more likely they are to be active participants in outdoor learning and community gardens and supporting these causes in their future. Parents and families value these skills and appreciate the Foundation supporting these initiatives for their children.”

Outdoor Learning Experiences

In partnership with Growing Up Organic

“Students, particularly those living in urban areas, have become disconnected from the land and unfamiliar with the real source of their food. Many students cannot identify locally grown produce, let alone have had the opportunity to taste fresh from the farm foods. For my students, many of whom are new immigrants, or who live in economically challenging circumstances, this is particularly true. For these reasons, a trip to a local, organic, operational farm was an invaluable learning experience. Through this hands-on experiential learning opportunity, my students not only connected to the land, but to a person, a farmer. They enjoyed learning about farming and caring for the land from Danny (the farmer), and they were thrilled to have the opportunity to help harvest from his fields. The kids worked hard to pick beets with Danny, and felt very proud of their efforts. These feelings of pride were matched only by the joy the kids felt as they delivered vegetables to our neighbours at the Parkdale Food Centre food bank… a gift from Danny, and another valuable lesson from him in caring for each other.”
