Our Programs

We tailor our programming to support what children are learning in class and at home by providing a unique, hands-on approach to environmental education.

Farmers in Training

This is a very hands-on program, perfect for children to experience ‘A Day in a Farmer’s Life.’ Roll up your sleeves, put on your working boots, and get your hands right in the soil. Learn what it takes to get food on your plate!

 

Junior Chefs: Earth to Table

Get ready to learn about zero waste lunches, our dependence on fossil fuels to transport our food, the impact of our diets on climate change, and what can we do to take action! This program is all about the senses. Students will get to harvest, taste, and prepare delicious snacks or lunches using the harvest they picked from our garden.

Outdoor Survivalist

This program is designed to encourage children to take an active role in learning, protecting, and enjoying the outdoors! Outdoor Survivalists offers plenty of opportunities to freely explore nature… from the tallest cedar to the tiniest micro-organisms in the soil

 

Little Artists

Learn to create art masterpieces using the unique treasures found in nature!

 

 

Field To Fork

The Field to Fork program is offered in collaboration with Black Creek Pioneer Village. Two great sites in one fun-filled day! This program is available from May 1 to November 30 for Grades 2-8. $17 per student. Book through the Pioneer Village Website by clicking here.
