Kitchen Garden Program
The UPPS Kitchen Garden Program engages our Grade 3/4 students in fun, hands-on learning experiences designed to develop positive and healthy food habits. Students are actively involved in cultivating the soil, planting and growing a variety of fruit and vegetables, harvesting crops, and cooking and preparing healthy, delicious meals.
Importantly, they are also encouraged to share food together as a meal, try different foods to develop an appreciation for diverse flavours, and share cultural understandings related to food.
Through these experiences, our students develop practical life skills, while connecting and collaborating with their peers, and gaining authentic knowledge about sustainability, caring for our environment, and food security.
