Fresh Roots in Vancouver
You don’t have to travel far to give your students a farm experience in our outdoor classrooms. Situated at Vancouver Technical and David Thompson secondary schools, our schoolyard farms are a short walk from many elementary schools and community centers. Our standard field trips are 2 hours long and include a farm work experience, as well as a tasting of farm-fresh veggies when available. Longer or shorter hour versions of some programs as well as custom themes may be available – ask when you book.
Cost & Group Size
We can host groups of up to 35 participants on either of our farm sites. We require 1 teacher/chaperone for every 8 grade K-3 students and for every 10 grade 4-12 students. Required adults do not count toward the group size. If your group needs more adult assistance, please let us know on the registration form.
|Number of Students||Cost|
|12 or under||$125|
All VSB classes will receive a 20% discount.
We strive to make our programs accessible to all groups. If cost is a barrier, please let us know on your request form.
