School Gardens

  • Growing

  • Muhiem School Garden

  • Freshly planted beds

  • Salad Day!

Our primary program is to support school gardens to be not only productive sites for food production but also as valuable learning places for children to actively engage in gardening and the environment and to be available to the community.

Grounbreakers currently supports the gardens at four schools (Walnut Park Elementary, Muheim Memorial Elementary, Telkwa Elementary, and Heartwood Elementary) by providing coordinating services, running lunch hour GardenClubs, and delivering garden lessons in planting and harvesting. 

A critical part of the School Garden program is Groundbreakers hiring a summer student to water and tend to gardens over the summer break in order to have them viable for learning and harvesting in the fall.
