Event description
Hey Vancouver youth! Take action about climate change with this workshop from Fresh Roots with CERBC as a part of Science Literacy Week.

About this event

In recognition of Science Literacy week, Fresh Roots, in collaboration with Climate Education Reform BC, and Dave Robinson, a Timiskaming carver and educator, is hosting two community, youth-focussed workshops. Join an engaging, hands-on, 1.5 hour workshop exploring our relationship to climate change, regenerative agriculture, food systems through storytelling and connecting with the land through cedar carving. Open to youth in grades 8-12.

  • September 23rd from 4:00pm-5:30pm at Vancouver Technical Secondary

This year’s Science Literacy theme is climate. They are partnering with Environment and Climate Change Canada and organizations from across Canada to offer content that will inspire you! Check out more events on their website: http://www.scienceliteracy.ca/

We have the privilege and honour to work on this land that is not ours. This is the ancestral and unceded homelands of the sc̓əwaθən məsteyəxʷ (Tsawwassen), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), q̓íc̓əy̓ (Katzie), stó:lō (Sto:lo), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), qiqéyt (Qayqayt), and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Coast Salish peoples. As settlers, as farmers, and as educators, we acknowledge the harm that farming and schooling have done to Indigenous Peoples and the land across this region. We work towards ongoing reconciliation as listeners, food sharers, and land stewards.

Organizer Fresh Roots

Organizer of Roots of Change! - Climate Change Youth Workshop for Science Literacy Week

VISION

Good Food For All! We envision a world where everyone has access to healthy food, land, and community.

MISSION

We cultivate engaging gardens and programs that catalyze healthy eating, ecological stewardship, and community celebration.

WHAT WE DO

We enact our mission through Schoolyard Market Gardens, educational farms we utilize as pathways to youth empowerment and employment. We facilitate outdoor experiential learning with teachers and students, mentor youth leaders through garden clubs and summer programming, host internships for high school aged youth fostering self-confidence, leadership and employment skills, and empower Vancouverites to grow their own food through our volunteer programs. All our food is sold into the school community; into cafeterias, food access programs, restaurants, and to our neighbours. We also work with other schools and organizations to develop their own market gardens and associated programming. We are a thought leader in institutional food systems change and outdoor experiential learning.

Our beliefs drive us towards our vision and direct our activities.

  • We believe that good, healthy food is a right for all people.
  • We believe that food is an inspiring and mobilizing force for good.
  • We believe that education is the first step towards positive personal and systems change.
  • We believe that healthy food systems are dependent upon a healthy environment and empowered communities.
  • We believe that how we work together is as important as the work we do.
  • We believe that collective action is imperative to food systems change.
