LEARN Podcast

School-Community Gardens are growing in Community Learning Centres across the province.  The gardens are fertile ground for school-community partnerships and represent a strategy that touches upon hands-on learning, family-community engagement and healthy food and healthy lifestyles.

A school-community garden is not always an easy endeavor - but if things go well, you can literally enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Listen to an interview with Kristen Keyes, a teacher in Montreal on the topic of a school-community garden she was involved in growing.
