"Participating in the Growing Young Farmers Program has been an enriching experience for my Grade 4 students. Through interactive classroom activities and weekly opportunities to get their hands dirty at a local, organic garden, students learned while having fun and being active, and they realized the value of growing and eating healthy, local food."
- Jennifer Alberring, Gr. 4 Teacher, Sidney Elementary
Dear Mr. Organic,
My son is in Kindergarten at Sir James Douglas School and came home last week excitedly saying " I LOVE red lettuce mommy!". This from a boy who won't ever eats anything leafy. Now he wants to buy some "without any chemicals" or grow our own. Thank you so much for this program and for getting our son to try red lettuce!
