Through the school year, we deliver curriculum-linked programs that engage students in hands-on learning through indoor and outdoor workshops.
We offer a variety of workshops for elementary, middle, and high school students!
Growing Schools hosts field trips and tours for K-12 school groups and community groups at the beautiful Welland Community Orchard and nearby Knockan Hill Park! This unique orchard houses over 200 fruit trees, shrubs, and vines.
Seed the City is a work experience program for high school students where they can gain skills in urban farming and gardening, explore career pathways in horticulture, and become part of the local food movement in their city.
We support the development and maintenance of gardens and micro-farms in consultation with individual school communities.
Volunteers are an essential part of our Growing Schools team. Assist with delivering garden-based workshops, youth leadership programs, garden installation, garden maintenance, and more!
