The Green Thumbs Growing Kids’ Farm Visits initiative, funded by the Greenbelt Foundation, engaged 24 youth in four hands-on educational trips to Wheelbarrow Farm in Sunderland Ontario. The trips were geared to providing the youth with the opportunity to learn about the Greenbelt, local food production in a rural setting, organic farming practices, and the Greenbelt’s role in local farm protection.
