Professional Development

Bring Fresh Roots to your Pro D Event!

We love sharing what we know with educators and supporting them in extending their classroom into their schoolyard, garden, and beyond. All ProD workshops will include a brief introduction to Fresh Roots and hands-on activities with lesson plans. ProD workshops can be held at your location, or you can come to one of our farms.  Costs start at $200 for a 1 hour workshop for up to 30 participants. Total cost will depend on the length of the program, travel costs (if more than 25km from our office), and materials costs (for art or vermicomposting workshops). We can work with you to create a ProD session that meets your needs. Some of our favorite topics include:

  • Nature is Everywhere: Connecting to Your Place
  • Observing Cycles and Seasons
  • Get Creative: Exploring New Foods through Art
  • Garden Visioning: Finding the Why of Your School Garden
  • Worms in Your Classroom: Vermicomposting 101

ProD workshops are available from November through March, and can be scheduled on your ProD day, or after school. For district ProD days, priority will go to VSB and SD43 events.
