East Side Family Place Little Gardener’s

Britannia School food garden, also known as Nexway wa lh7aynexw or transformed life in Coast Salish is also home to the Eastside Family Place Little Gardener’s program who are connecting little children to the garden. The program allows for a play based learning about food growing and have created a number of fun activities including salad bowl planting, bug races, picnics, food prep from the garden, berry picking, dandelion harvesting, watering, story time, and much more.

Children are naturally drawn to the garden and gaining exposure to food planting and harvesting at a young age will lead a lasting impression and work to teach children where their food actually comes from, that is the naturally grown food. For many of the children in the program, it was one of their most enjoyable activities.
