Organic Gardening and Food Security in Rurual Northern Ontario

Map pinTerrace Bay, Yukon

COVID-19 has exposed our reliance on the transportation network and the global food network in our rural community in Northern Ontario. Our high school will design, build, and maintain a community garden while learning about gardening, composting, and food preservation.

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 more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
