Britannia Students in the Garden

Britannia Secondary students learn and work in the school gardens as part of their regular class time. Through a partnership with Environmental Youth Alliance’s Growing Kids program, we are working with four classes – Bio 11, Planning 10, Streefront, and 8J9J Alternative and learning a variety of gardening skills. Most important, kids are getting a basic introduction into food growing, food systems and environmental sustainability all in a very hands-on and experiential learning. We emphasize empowerment, that the kids can do it and through their work can see concrete results -namely actual food grown that they can say they planted themselves, which for some kids it can be a very exciting experience.
