Our day will begin at 9:45 and end at 2:15, with a 45 minute lunch break. Only 300 students will be allowed each day. Register now! We will accept the first 300 on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. All students in grades 5 and 6 are encouraged to come. Split classes – grades 4/5 and 6/7 – are also welcome.
Our Mission: The Roots of Bruce Project serves to raise an awareness of the importance of our agricultural community, food production and supporting industries in Bruce County for grades five and six students and teachers.
Our Objective: To develop in each student an understanding and an appreciation for the production and marketing of food and the sustainable practices to manage our natural resources.
Our Goal: To establish a practice of choosing healthy food that will contribute to the total well-being and long-term health of each participant for the benefit of our entire community.
The Roots of Bruce is endorsed by both the Bluewater District School Board and the Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board.
