Whether you’re looking for a no-transportation field trip, space to spread out, or just a new way of seeing a subject, a Fresh Roots Field Class is a perfect solution! Field Classes are approximately 1 hour farm or classroom programs for teachers and students at David Thompson and VanTech Secondary Schools led by trained Fresh Roots educators. All Field Classes support the BC Curriculum, and many are interdisciplinary, touching on Big Ideas, competencies, and content from several courses. Field Classes are free for David Thompson and Van Tech classes! Depending on demand, we may limit bookings to two programs per class per season.

Farm programs are generally available after Spring Break through the end of the school year, and from the start of school through October. Some programs may be available in November, depending on farm and weather conditions.
Classroom workshops are in-person and dependent on current COVID policies.
Classroom workshops make a great follow up to a farm program, or a stand-alone program in the off season. We can generally schedule classroom workshops from September through November and February through June. Availability may be limited in October and after mid-April.
