Fruits of the community

Map pinBurnaby, British Columbia

We plan to build garden boxes in our school’s courtyard which will be cared for by us, the students who will (depending on the fruitfulness of the crop) give what we grow to the Christian brothers living in our school, and/or the local soup kitchens in our community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
