Sustainable Food Systems Education
Digging, planting, cooking, eating, and building community: it’s all part of the fun!
For many years, The Stop has provided fun and engaging workshops for children in Davenport West-area schools in an effort to involve youth, their teachers, and the wider community in the political and environmental issues that relate to food production and consumption. With the launch of The Stop’s Green Barn in 2009, we increased capacity and outreach to schools in the St. Clair and Christie neighbourhood. The Stop assists participating schools by providing hands-on educational activities that focus on food issues while directly supporting the learning goals of the Ontario curriculum.
The Stop’s Sustainable Food Systems Education programs are free of charge, but only available to schools in the Davenport West and St. Clair/Christie area.
