ALIMENTARY IN THE SCHOOLS


WORKSHOPS AND AN ASSEMBLY ON THE FUTURE OF FOOD

 

To accompany the Voyage to Anthropocene: Future Food Salon Series 3, we are offering four classroom workshops that examine the Anthropocene from the perspective of food. The workshops are being developed in collaboration with our community partners including Chef Cookie Martinez, Inventor and Designer Kubo Dzamba of Third Millennium Farms, Social Innovation Consultant Lindsay McDonald of Fresh Eye Thinking, Housing Services Director David Reycraft of Dixon Hall in Toronto’s Regent Park, Caitlin Holland, music teacher, and Environmental Advocate Nadine Guimond of BYOC (Bring your own container) Campaign. Programming is being designed to with relevant curriculum goals in mind for grades 4-6, grades 7-8, grades 9-10 and grades 11 and 12. The workshop themes tie in both with the Assembly and with activities in the Teaching Resource Packages we are preparing for this program. We are

 

always interested in feedback from teachers and workshop participants, so if you have suggestions, please do get in touch. Details including workshop descriptions, curriculum goals and Teaching Resource Packages, as well as details about how to book will be posted here on this page (please bookmark it) and they will also be sent to teachers and youth program administrators who have indicated interest. Workshop previews begin in March 2019 and the series’ season runs from October 2019 to June 2020. The 45 minute assembly show features live music and a story related to the Anthropocene food themes. That show will begin touring schools in the 2019-2020 academic year. We cannot’ wait to start the workshop previews this coming spring. Please sign up for updates or write to us to indicate interest in booking workshops in the preview session. On behalf of all of us on the Schools Program Team, we look forward to hearing from you.
