1913468_10151912553936455_720882707_oEcosource is offering free curriculum-linked class field trips to Peel teachers and students of all ages interested in learning about sustainability within the local community.

Free of charge, you can visit one of their community garden or urban agriculture sites this spring to learn about:

• Organic gardening
• Pollination
• Plant and animal life cycles
• Food security and social justice
• Aquaponics and watersheds in the garden
• Healthy eating and healthy ecosystems
• Composting and soil life
• Summer volunteer opportunities
…and more

All field trips are offered free of charge and are available to schools located in the Region of Peel.

If your school is located within the garden neighbourhood, walking field trips are offered. Busing subsidies are also offered where needed to support the cost of bus rentals for students visiting from farther away.
