We work collaboratively to turn school ground gardens and micro-farms into meaningful pathways and possibilities for the next generation of urban food systems leaders.
Through the school year, we deliver curriculum-linked programs that engage students in hands-on learning through indoor and outdoor workshops. We also support the development and maintenance of gardens and micro-farms in consultation with individual school communities.
During the summer, Our Seed the City project works in partnership with TOPSOIL and SD61 to give interested high school students an opportunity to participate in a credited work experience program. Youth in this program gain experience in urban farming and gardening, explore career pathways in horticulture, and become part of the local food movement in their city.
Volunteers support the program by assisting with garden-based workshops, youth leadership programs, garden installation and work bees, costume making and more!
