Learning about Urban Agriculture

Trustee Laura Dixon, Superintendent Dianne Turner and Solefoodfarms' founders Michael Ableman and Seann Dory, take a tour of the two acre Solefoodfarm site yesterday. The site is the largest producing urban farm in North America and is a fine example of how to produce food and employ people on marginal land using raised garden beds and innovative farming techniques.
The Delta School District is actively building its own network of neighbourhood schoolyard farms to promote a unit based horticultural curriculum for K-12 and to grow fresh food for the nutritional and cultural benefit of core school neighbourhoods.
Children and learners in the Delta School District will be the ultimate benefactors of this program and it is hoped that all 16 thousand children in thirty-one schools will participate in the 'Project Pickle' initiative in 2013.

We had a great meeting with Michael and Seann. They are doing some really fantastic things at solefoodfarms!
