Help Kids Learn About Food and Gardening in Schools

Although we normally talk about seed saving and fall harvesting at this time of year, we're making this special appeal to ask our members to help grow school food gardens. Since 2017, Seeds of Diversity has created over 8000 square feet of food gardens at schools and taught over 14000 students how to grow their own fresh. nutritious produce.

Now, more than ever, schools are looking for ways to engage and inspire kids in safe, outdoor classrooms and unexpectedly they need ways to connect with thousands of kids who are learning from home online this year.

Our School Food Gardens program is the perfect fit!

  • We are building gardens at schools, and teaching kids to grow food.
  • We are giving special training for educators to incorporate gardening, food, and nutrition skills into their teaching.
  • We offer all-new online resources for kids to learn about food, climate change, health, and agriculture.
Right now, schools are trying to invest in outdoor education as much as possible, to create safer learning. They're turning to our program to learn how. Now we need your help to be able to respond to this need -- and this opportunity for our kids' future.
Learn more about what we're doing at schoolfoodgardens.ca and please help with a charitable donation. Any amount helps a lot.

Outdoor classrooms deserve a place in the future of education!
