NUTRIENT FOR LIFE LEARNING GARDEN INITIATIVE

The Nutrients for Life (NFL) Learning Garden Initiative helps students from elementary to high school explore and experience the science behind food production. 

 

Green Manitoba, with support from the Nutrient for Life Foundation Canada, has created a network of schools across Canada dedicated to using gardens as a tool to educate their students.  Each member school is provided with support to establish or enhance their school’s garden. Teachers are also provided with educational materials to help them develop and deliver experiential, action-oriented lessons related to modern agriculture, gardening, plant growth, nutrition, and sustainability.

SCHOOLS COMPOST!

Schools Compost! is a Green Manitoba program that educates students on how to divert organics from their schools’ waste stream and turn it into a resource for their school’s garden. The program helps schools acquire the tools and knowledge needed to create, maintain and expand successful composting programs.  It also provides teachers with educational resources to develop lesson plans and activities related to composting.

 

In addition to its educational value, Schools Compost! yields environmental benefits by encouraging teachers and students to reduce the amount of waste entering landfills and the amount to greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.
