This past weekend SOYL (Sustainable Opportunities for Youth leadership) held a food market as part of their summer gardening internship program. Teens from Vancouver schools work in four school gardens over the summer – Britannia, Van Tech, David Thompson, and Churchill where they develop skills and leadership in managing their school gardens. Food sold at the market all was grown in the school gardens. The students raised about $150.
The Grandview Woodland Food Connection is pleased to help support this program and help build youth capacity at Britannia School.
