This four-week program provides the opportunity to learn about food production and eco-farming through hands-on adventures on our school farm. Students plant, nurture, and harvest greens, root vegetables, and more learning first-hand about  the business of running a farm and the value of sustainability. Mornings and evenings are devoted to the farm program; afternoons are spent in recreational activities on our waterfront and campus. Students earn an Ontario Secondary School interdisciplinary course credit in Green Technologies and Entrepreneurship. 



Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Responsibility: Focused on sustainable practices, this course encourages stewardship of the land and practical responsibility. Students quickly see the impact of their daily involvement on the farming project and will learn seven-generation responsibility in terms of environmental issues.
  • Interpersonal skills: Students will learn to work together, whether on the farm, through planning, building projects, collaborative planting and harvesting, or in their afternoon activity sessions such as team sailing and paddling. Students will alternate between roles (leadership, facilitator, recorder) on projects.
