Schoolyard Farm Program (closed)

Turning Schoolyards into Farmyards

Thanks to the generous support of Vancouver Foundation, A Rocha’s Schoolyard Farm Program transformed school grounds in three inner-city school communities in Surrey, BC. We worked with students, teachers, school staff, and neighbours to develop gardens and a gardening program that suited each community.
