Fresh Roots in Vancouver

Fall field trips open for booking!

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 as seasonally available.
