Nutrition Policies

  • Vancouver Board of Education Food Garden Policy

    The Vancouver Board of Education encourages and supports the development of school food gardens. The School Board first adopted a Food Garden Policy and a Garden Process in February 2010. It has since been revised (October 2011) to reflect the lessons learned during the first year of its use. This document includes the full policy statement and outlines a process for schools to follow for establishing food producing gardens, using the garden produce and composting plant waste. Many of the steps will be relevant to other schools working towards establishing their own food-producing gardens.
