2019 Think&EatGreen@School Summer Institute

Food: People, Place, Possibilities

TEGS will host a three-day Summer Institute for K-12 educators on 3-5 July 2019.  Registration is now open here (thinkeatgreen.ca if links aren’t working).

The theme of this year’s Summer Institute is “Food: People, Place, Possibilities.”  Through three days of workshops, plenary sessions, shared meals, and networking, participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of school food systems topics, including gardening across seasons, food preparation, messaging around food, and youth engagement. While integrating food systems into curriculum will be a thread running throughout the Institute, curriculum and classroom activity development will be the focus of several sessions. Throughout the Institute, participants will have the opportunity to share, reflect on, and strengthen teaching and learning practices surrounding food systems.

We’ll be highlighting the speakers and facilitators on the Summer Institute webpage in the coming weeks!  More information about the schedule is available on this page.

Early bird registration is $82 all-inclusive.  Discount codes are available both for participants from school teams who received TEGS grants in 2018-2019, and for participants who attend with one or more colleagues from the same school.  If you have any questions, please contact Raihan Hassen, TEGS Project Assistant, at raihan.hassen@ubc.ca.

TEGS is based at the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm, in partnership with the Vancouver School Board, with funding support from the City of Vancouver.

Park Board Program Instructors

Interested in finding more opportunities as a food based program instructor in Vancouver community centres?

As part of the Vancouver Park Board’s plan to increase food and kitchen-based programming in community centres, we are inviting food facilitators/instructors to register in the Park Board’s Online Instructor Database. Community centre programmers can find and hire instructors for workshops and programs with a specific focus on food programming—specifically instructors who specialize in nutrition, community kitchens, food preservation, gardening, meal programming, and any other niche or food based skill that can be shared with residents across our communities.

When registering, make sure to tag yourself under the new category Food, Cooking, and Gardening” to ensure programmers can find you. People who have previously worked in community centres may not be currently listed in the database, so please make sure to register and update your information using the following link:
The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation On-line Instructor Database

Some individual community centers have their own additional instructor registration forms posted on their direct websites. If you are distinctly interested in working with one specific centre, you can also register through their direct sites.

Please forward this information to any instructors and organizations that work with food programming in Vancouver community centres.

If you have any questions or difficulties using the database, please email recreation@vancouver.ca and use “food instructor” as a subject line.

  1. Hi, my name is Ashley. I am very interested in the Sunday classes; Kombucha Brewing, Raw Vegan in 10 Minutes, Sinlesss Desserts for All and Cleansing With Smoothies. The classes run every Sunday starting on Janurary 29th to February 19th. Unfortunately for me as I work Sunday’s because I have school Monday to Thursday and I work Saturday and Sunday, I can’t make it to the classes. so my question to you is will these aforementioned classes run another time? Hopefully on a Friday, Tuesday or Thursday. My Tuesday and Thursday classes are drop-in classes.

    1. Hello Ashley,

      I hope that you get this in time. I missed your comment earlier. yes, you are welcome to come. We are in the pre-teen centre at Britannia. Just bring a small jar to take home your mother. And you will need to register at the front office first.

    2. Hi Ashley,

      Sorry, I saw your message in the stats page, which only provides a snip of the message. The Kombucha workshop is popular so we will try to offer at anther time in the future. That goes for all the workshops. Leave me your email address and I will add to our email list so that I can keep you updated on future workshops and events, etc.

      Thanks,
      Ian
