School Grown: growing food to grow people webinarsStart on March 1st 2016. End on March 22nd 2016
School Grown is a project featuring schoolyard farms that provide paid jobs and school credit for high school students. We're a project of @FoodShareTO and we farm at Bendale BTI & the roof of Eastdale CI. Join us for a series of one hour webinars where we'll share some of the things we've learned. You can ask anything you want and we'll share resources we've developed. All webinars start at 12pm EST.
