Two food, community & garden-based servcies have teamed up to offer a comprehensive food education program to schools! Our program offers teachers and kids the opportunity to learn about growing, preparing and cooking their own healthy food from experts in the field. Healthy food and eating habits has never been so engaging and comprehensive. We'll take you on an educational experience, literally from seed to plate. Choose from a list of hands-on garden and nutrition workshops which tie learning into the curriculum while your garden produces, teaches your class and is harvested together. Fabulous educational materials also support teachers and help the program come alive for students and the extended school-community.


  • Is your organization located in York Region (Markham, Newmarket, Vaughan or Richmond Hill)?
  • Do you work with children or youth ages 4-11?
  • Would you like food literacy to be included in your classroom curriculum or summer camp program?

If you answered YES to the above questions, maybe you'd like to find out more about this service? The deadline for fall school registration is approaching (mid-August) and even though we have limited spots available we would like to hear from you! From there we'll set up a FREE information meeting.
Summer Camp Enrollment is now closed, as of June 15th.
