"The Britannia School Garden is one of Grandview Woodland Food Connection (GWFC)'s main programs, acknowledging that healthy food choice should start at a young age. We work with approximately 100 students, connecting them to the food they eat, learning and growing. For most students, planting seeds, caring for the garden, then harvesting and eating veggies that they grew is an empowering experience." CCEC member Ian Marcuse, GWFC Coordinator (a Neighbourhood Food Network member) which support food access for Grandview Woodland and nearby residents who are struggling financially.
