What is this project about?

The GROW Project, a program of Loving Spoonful, engages students through hands-on, curriculum-connected learning. Workshops are delivered in class, or at one of our urban agriculture sites.

The GROW Project is built on the principles of good food, community, collaboration, and environmental stewardship.

We work closely with the local school boards in Kingston and area, and engage students from Kindergarten to Grade 8, across 25 schools.

We believe it is important that we take a community-based approach to ensure programming is co-created and that it meets the needs of students and schools.

We create opportunities for students to connect with local community members, like farmers, or other guest speakers.

Ultimately, The GROW Project fosters resilient communities that nourish and support dignified access to good, local food for all, by helping students learn about food systems, their role within it, and how to make a difference in their community.
