Do you have garden space at your school but are unsure of where to start? Do you need some fresh ideas for growing food at your school? Are you looking for ways to teach your students about growing their own food? Do you want to connect your students to agriculture and BC's food story? If so, come and learn about the free resources BC Agriculture in the Classroom has to offer teachers! We have growing programs, lesson plans, unit plans, farm tour videos, recipes and more! Come learn about our resources and participate in activities you can take back to school the next day.

Raised on a small berry farm on Vancouver Island, she is ready to share her enthusiasm for food and first hand agriculture knowledge with teachers across BC. Holly has taught Kindergarten, Grade One, Grade Two, and Grade Four and has worked in independent and public schools in Vanderhoof and in Kelowna. When not helping teachers with the sharing of BC’s Food Story, Holly likes to wrangle her three small children and pursue her new hobby of canning her freshly grown produce.
