Landed Learning volunteers chat with teachers and Farmer Aaron over lunch in the garden at Westview School

A few updates for you to start the year:

  1. The Grants page has been updated. There are some great funding opportunities either available now or opening soon. Please contact me if you would like any help with these.
  2. The 2019-20 Landed Learning program is ready for launch! All elementary schools are being offered a Garden-based Learning Resource Package  to support them with using school gardens to provide hands-on, cross-curricular learning. There is no cost to schools, and activities can be tailored to suit specific interests and needs.
  3. We have had a fantastic response to our call-out for volunteers for the LL program taking place at Westview Elementary. On August 27, 12 volunteers got together with program staff, teachers and a local farmer to enjoy lunch in the school garden and get to know each other. It’s a great group and we’re really excited to be working with them! If you are interested in participating, we have room for 1 or 2 more…please contact Vanessa Sparrow at: vanessa.sparrow@sd47.bc.ca for details.
