Program Description & Details

Whether it’s spring, summer, or fall, there’s constantly more to discover at Loutet Farm! Seasonally, we cultivate vegetables, fruit, and flowers, both for market production and seed saving. Students will learn about the unique growing conditions that come with living in a temperate rainforest, and how we work with the seasons and adapt to changes. You’ll get a chance to identify and taste what we’re currently harvesting and learn about the organic, low-till methods we employ on the North Shore’s first urban farm. Food literacy, life cycles, and farm systems are best learned through hands-on exploration... no matter the season, your hands will be getting dirty!

(Grades 2-5) Through experience and roleplay, students learn how industries take on the responsibility of spill clean-up on the Fraser River, and learn about their connections to the use of resources.

Key Messages:

  • We all have a responsibility to care for the environment.
  • Taking preventative steps is important for preventing accidents.
  • Currently, in Canada we all use materials that can be harmful if not used properly.

Program Description & Details

Looking for a live experience, but current policy has you staying close to home?  We’re taking our Owls and First Nations Hiwus program on the road to your school!   While we would much rather have your students visit an authentic Feasthouse and enjoy the wide open spaces of Grouse Mountain, we realize that’s not always possible.  We are now taking bookings for our Outreach program that will include experienced Educators, owl ambassadors, and First Nations presenters.  Our staff will teach your students about owls and open a discussion about habitat and conservation. In turn, our elder will drum, sing and speak to your students about the rich, Squamish culture and the importance of community.
