This report summarizes the Intergenerational School Garden Pilot Program that took place in BC’s Comox Valley between April 2021 to November 2021. In it, you’ll find practical tips, as well as outlines for student activities. 

The pilot program outlined in the report demonstrates how 8 participating schools in School District 71, with the help of a facilitator from LUSH Valley Food Action Society, embraced the farm to school approach through participating in gardening workshops. While farm to school programs in each school community can look different, the LUSH Valley program leaves us with one inspiring model to build and sustain a program where students, school and community win.

The program builds on a growing momentum for farm to school activity which has been documented in Growing a Movement: Farm to school in the Comox Valley case study published by Farm to Cafeteria Canada in 2021.
