Be inspired by the greening stories of two Toronto secondary schools that have engaged students in innovative hands-on projects to transform their schools into an urban oasis with unique learning opportunities.
Join us for our upcoming webinars:
Urban Agriculture in Schools: Eastdale’s Rooftop Market Garden
Wednesday, April 27 2016 | 3:30–4:30pm EDT
Learn how an underutilized roof space at an inner-city school was transformed into a thriving ½ acre rooftop garden. Hear about how the fresh produce grown by the students supplies the school’s culinary program and cafeteria. The harvest is also sold to farmer’s markets and local restaurants, providing students with a first-hand opportunity to learn about social enterprise and sustainability.
