2019 Think&EatGreen@School Summer Institute
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com and use “food instructor” as a subject line.
