Grow Food/ Get Cooking Summer Camps

Through our summer camp program, we strengthen and support sustainable community food systems, provide kids and the community with gardening and cooking skills, along with knowledge and understanding of the food system. 

The camp inspires participants to grow, harvest, cook and enjoy their own fresh organic food while learning more about their local food system and how to become stewards of the environment. Participants will explore scientific theory, apply math lessons, create art, reflect and write, improve motor skills and promote healthier eating habits. The knowledge of "how to" grow and cook, farm to fork! 

As a Non-Profit organization, Foodshare offers these educational programs for the community for a fee of $335 for the week. This includes supplies and food. Payment can be made through this sign up on Stripe or the Foodshare office. If this investment is still a barrier for you to participate, then please email foodskills@nanaimofoodshare.ca
