Big Help on the Fresh Roots Farm
April 13 10:00 am
Fresh Roots grows educational farms on school grounds—we LOVE outdoor education and run programs that catalyze healthy eating, ecological stewardship, and community celebration. Our programs include farm field trips for teachers and their classes that support the BC Curriculum, workshops, day camps, and youth empowerment programs.
Join us at our Van Tech farm for a Big Help volunteering day!
Big Helps are a super fun way to learn a bit more about urban farming, to spend time getting your hands dirty and giving back, and to connect with the Fresh Roots community. We welcome people of all ages, and no experience is necessary—we’ll teach you everything you need to know!
Please sign up for this event so we know how many people to expect.
The April Big Help is filling up fast, but we hold these fun events every month, so you can sign up for whichever Big Help works for your schedule! Sign up and get all the info at freshroots.ca/get-involved/volunteer
Date and time
April 13 10:00 am
Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society
2600 East Broadway
Vancouver, BC V5M1Y5 Canada
The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
