Earth Bites works with schools on a partnership basis throughout the year & also offers one off workshops to schools.

Our dedicated team of food educators, with backgrounds in urban gardening, have been working in VSB schools for over eight years, connecting the classroom to the environment & inspiring future generations.


SCHOOL PROGRAMS

PARTNERSHIPS

EarthBites works closely with PACS, teachers & students, transforming their school garden space into outdoor classrooms which are fully utilized & integrated into the school curriculum.

The Earth Bites team visits the school once a week throughout the school year – leading seasonal workshops such as growing garlic, apple tasting, busy bees, micro-greens & spring planting. Each workshop involves working in the garden (planning, planting, harvesting, composting & more) & creating a healthy & nutritious seasonal snack.

COLD MONTHS

During the colder months, students learn to create eco-products such as soy candles, rosemary salts & apple chips which are sold at school pocket markets. All money raised is used to buy soil, seeds, plants & more to keep their school garden thriving.

At the end of the year, there is a School Feast, for which students & teachers come together to create salads, pastas & drinks from the veggies & fruits grown in their garden.
