Grow Your Group
Team Building with School Farms in Your City

Our schoolyard farms are bustling with activity and we’d love to welcome your organization for a Team Building opportunity. We’re looking for teams to join us in a range of activities. From cooking healthy meals and making value added goods, to turning compost, transplanting seedlings, beautifying the space, or building new infrastructure, there is always good work to be done!

Why Team Build with Fresh Roots

  • Share a unique, outdoor experience with your group, as you discover how fun farming can be!
  • Help create meaningful change in your community by supporting healthy, school-grown food and innovative educational opportunities for Vancouver youth.
  • Invigorate your team, explore your collective abilities and celebrate the joys of sustainably-grown food!

What You’ll Do

Team Builds are generally 3 hours in duration. During your Team Build, your team will:

  • Get to know one another through facilitated team activities
  • Tour and learn the story of the schoolyard farm
  • Learn how your group will help make a difference
  • Taste farm-fresh food (when seasonally available)
  • Help us grow Good Food For All!

“Thanks so much for arranging the team event yesterday. It was educational, fun and I think we accomplished something good too. The weather and the company could not have been better. Thanks to Ed as well for letting us do this on work time! Looking forward to the next one!” — Ken Davis, Consultant, Training & Development, Community Member Services
