Vancouver 24hrs wrote a great article on the exciting direction Fresh Roots is heading in!

“This year, new project partners have emerged, including a jobs skill training program in horticulture for developmentally disabled youth to help employ them in their fourth year of school and transition after graduation, according to Marc Schutzbank, Fresh Roots co-executive director.

Another project between Fresh Roots, the University of B.C. and Landed Learning is getting planted where students will learn everything — from growing, harvesting, cooking, marketing and selling healthy foods — and have an eight-week summer internship, which organizers hope to grow into a four-year program, Schutzbank said.”
