TELCCS preschoolers celebrate local food

Male Children's Services staffer plants seedlings in our child care centre garden as a little girl waters them.Toronto Children's Services has partnered with Holland Marsh Growers Association to increase awareness of local food. Children enrolled in our preschool programs were provided with seeds to plant in their centre gardens which they will care for, harvest and cook according to their favourite local food recipe. Children will also have a chance to visit Holland Marsh to see how the experts grow their own veggies.
