School Food Gardens are wonderful avenues to get students actively engaged in healthy eating, but healthy eating is really just one aspect of the value that gardens add to school communities! In Thunder Bay, we are lucky enough to have some incredible school garden champions, and as a result, gardens are starting to pop up all over the city.

The working group focusing on school food gardens is made up of parents, teachers and board representatives who have started working together to build a school garden network. Together, this group is looking at advocating for policy additions that support sustaining and creating more school gardens, building in curriculum that reflects the northern environment we grow in, and developing and sharing resources (including funding resources) to help gardens be more successful.

If you would like to get more involved in this working group, or you are new to school gardens and you're looking for some inspiration to get started,
please be in contact with Jen Lailey or Janice Piper.
