Four years ago David Thompson Secondary School, 1755 E. 55th Ave., converted their underutilized front lawn into a Schoolyard Market Garden.


The project was three years in the planning and involved student clubs, the Green Team Initiatives, and partner organizations such as the South Vancouver Neighbhourhood House and Fresh Roots,  a non-profit organization working with school communities cultivating engaging gardens and programs that catalyze healthy eating, ecological stewardship, and community celebration.


All food grown is distributed back into the community, through cafeteria

sales and Good Food Markets.

As well, the program hosts dozens of classes across disciplines, extracurricular opportunities, schoolyard farm tours, field trips, and team building opportunities. Neighbours gather with the school community, celebrating the simple joys, wonder, and magic of growing food.

One such event is the South Vancouver Harvest Festival, October 19, 2017, from 3 to 5:30 p.m held at the garden, corner of East 55th and Argyle. Come and enjoy free snacks, apple cider pressing, pumpkin decorating,  a dessert contest, games and other activities.The event is free, suitable for all ages and will take place rain or shine so dress accordingly.
