Looking for a fun, hands-on field trip that will help your students connect with food, the land, and each other? Want an out-of-classroom experience designed to support the new BC Curriculum? We would love to welcome your class or youth group to visit our farms!
You don’t have to travel far to give your students a farm experience. Situated at Vancouver Technical and David Thompson secondary schools, our schoolyard farms are a short walk from many elementary schools and community centers. All field trips are 2 hours long and include a farm work experience, as well as a tasting of salad or other veggies.
Cost: $150 for up to 25 youth; $6 for each additional youth.
Adult Assistance: We require 1 teacher/chaperone for every 6 grade K-3 students, 8 grade 4-5 students, 10 grade 6-7 students, and 12 grade 8-12 students. Additional adults will be charged at the student rate. If your group needs accommodation for more adult assistance, please let us know on the registration form.
Group Size: We can host up to 35 people (youth plus adults) on either of our farm sites. If you have a larger group, consider booking both a morning and an afternoon session, and have the whole group enjoy lunch together!
Scheduling: September field trips are now full, and October field trip availability is limited! Our farms hibernate in the winter. Please plan your field trip for before November 17, 2017 or after March 1, 2018. Looking for a winter Fresh Roots program? Consider bringing a workshop to your school!

VSB elementary schools in the David Thompson and VanTech catchments can receive a 50% subsidy for Fresh Roots field trips in September and October 2017!
Just for Fun!
