Our goal is to engage learning communities and families; to share knowledge, skills, and create an inclusive community around shared gardens. This project promotes sustainability in schools by developing and maintaining green spaces such as food and vegetable gardens. This program is designed to educate and foster an appreciation among children about how food is grown, how to eat healthily and how to care for our natural environment. So far there are two established school gardens under this project, one at St. Christopher’s Catholic Elementary School and the very recently opened gardens at Lincoln Centennial Public School.
WASTE FREE SCHOOLS
Creating waste free schools through education and action! This is a waste reduction program designed for elementary and secondary schools. The goals of this program are carefully aligned with the Ontario Waste Free Act which seeks to reduce the amount of waste being deposited in local landfills. This program offers practical workshops for students from JK to Grade 12, whole school campaigns and waste audits.
