This year, 5000 children and youth have grown good food AND themselves in Fresh Roots programs like SOYL, their youth-empowerment program. They are trying to raise $10,000 by December 31, 2018 to support even more young people, so please donate now at http://freshroots.ca/donate!

From Fresh Roots: Fresh Roots is a non-profit organization working with school communities towards Good Food For All: everyone deserves access to healthy food, land, and community. We work towards this vision by cultivating engaging gardens and programs that catalyze healthy eating, ecological stewardship, and community celebration. Since 2011 we have grown the first schoolyard market gardens in Canada, fostered leadership and employment training through schoolyard farm programming, offered food literacy professional development for BC’s educators, distributed delicious, freshly grown food into schools and local communities, and provided an inspirational voice in our community.
