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 or ride from many elementary schools and community centers. We can host up to 40 people (youth and adults) at a time 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!
Cost: School and Youth Groups: $5/student (minimum $125) + GST
Special Offer! VSB elementary schools in the David Thompson and VanTech catchments can receive a 50% subsidy for Fresh Roots field trips in May, June, September, and October 2017!
All field trips are 2 hours long and include a farm work experience, as well as a tasting of salad or other veggies.
For the best experience, we ask for 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 you need accommodation to bring more chaperones, please let us know on the registration form.
Just for Fun!
