Everdale farms’ “train the trainer” workshops provide insight to farmers on how to transform their farms into living classrooms.
Reaching out to over 100,000 children and adults a month, FoodShare Toronto is a community food security organization which subsidizes fresh produce distribution, workshops and nutrition programs. FoodShare Toronto works in conjunction with Everdale, an organic farm and environmental learning center, to build a local food culture for kids.
Connecting kids with food is a natural and interactive way to introduce them to the splendor of their local landscape. In order to show young people about all aspects of their food system, the Greenbelt and eating local foods, students visit Everdale Farm, where farmers and schools in the Greenbelt work together to enhance foods skills and cultivate a food ethic. They explore and interact in the FoodShare Toronto kitchen, tasting the bounty of local products and creating meals with them.
