Day Programs

Grade 3 Program

The Grade 3 program at The Stop’s Green Barn offers kids a chance to experience the barns while they learn concepts connected to the science curriculum. This visit runs in the mornings from April to June. Activities include:

• touring the Green Barn
• making a vermicompost bin
• composting and playing worm biology games
• planting and harvesting food crops

Elementary Student Visit

For all classes in elementary schools, we offer a one-hour educational visit to our community garden at Earlscourt Park from May to June. Children and teens get a chance to play and learn outside while digging, planting seeds, and doing activities that reinforce school curriculum.

Teacher Training

For teachers in junior kindergarden to grade 3, we offer a ‘Lunch and Learn Teacher Training Workshop’ on vermicomposting. Teachers receive hands-on instruction on how to create and care for a worm bin with their students, and receive a free worm kit with materials.
