You wouldn’t believe how kids light up when they experience our hands-on activities, workshops, events and growing projects. From compost and gardening to cooking and tasting to food justice and serene nature connections, our workshops engage students from JK to Grade 12. All our workshops are tried-and-tested, with strong curriculum connections and open source, shareable resources for educators.
