The GROW Project: "It's like a spray can of knowledge!"
850 students across the Kingston region, from Sharbot Lake to Napanee, now learn through hands-on programming in classrooms and school gardens.
GROW Project workshops like Salsa & Social Justice, Kale & Culture, and Salad Bar Celebrations move students out of their seats, making and growing fresh food while they learn about the food system, climate change, seeds and soils, biodiversity and more.
