Farm to School

The Farm to School program at McGill’s Macdonald Campus runs interactive workshops at its working farm and in schools for children in the Greater Montreal area.

To complement the modules, teachers can find a range of educational materials on the Farm to School website. The modules are free to download and have been developed in line with the Ministère de l’Éducation de l’Enseignement supérieur’s Progression of Learning guidelines, making them easy to incorporate into the science curriculum. Topics include:

  • Farm animals
  • The science of erosion
  • Herbs and their many uses

When school’s out, Farm to School also runs a fantastic summer day camp program (ages 6-13)!
