In partnership with TOPSOIL Innovative Urban Agriculture, we work with schools to build productive “micro-farms” on school grounds. TOPSOIL’s modular micro-farm systems can be placed on any surface. They are an excellent option for schools wishing to get students involved with growing food that is used in their school meal programs, or for schools looking to have a low-maintenance learning garden. TOPSOIL can lead the micro-farm material sourcing and installation, and LifeCycles can lead student engagement in the micro-farms. Contact us to learn more about setting up a micro-farm at your school!
Food from these micro-farms is used in school meal programs with opportunities for students to participate in experiential learning as they work to harvest and grow nutritious food for their school community.

LifeCycles can also work with your school to install, and engage students in, other types of gardens (such as raised bed gardens). Contact us to discuss your school’s specific garden needs!
In partnership with the Greater Victoria School District, we deliver a summer work experience program for high school students where they can gain skills in urban farming and gardening, earn credits towards graduation, and become part of the local food movement in their city. Learn more!
