Needed! 12 school food gardens in Toronto. Plus funding to change policy so every school in Ontario has food education.


With FoodShare’s Field to Table Schools program, I designed and built 12 food gardens in elementary, junior and high schools around the city of Toronto. Working with school communities to develop individual programs from the ground up and integrating the gardens into Ontario curriculum ensured longterm success. After the project I secured $25,000 from The Heart and Stroke foundation to fund a student sit-in at Queen’s Park, where thousands of students lobbied on their own behalf for changes to school food policy.
