Do you consider yourself to be passionate about good, local food? Do you long to pass on your knowledge and enthusiasm to the next generation?
We are seeking several guest speakers for our 6 week ‘Food e-Academy’ program for youth aged 15-18. The program is held each Saturday from April 9th to May 14th from 10am-1pm.
Food e-Academy is a new program for young foodies who are passionate about our local food system. They will learn about the local food economy through hands-on experience from production (tour farms and community gardens), processing (visit and learn from local food makers), food policy/security (learn from local food agencies) to eating (create amazing meals with locally sourced ingredients).
Over the course of the session together we will collaborate what we have learned through a digital story which will be shared with the community. Youth will also be invited to start the Comox Valley’s first Youth Food Council.
We are looking for inspiring and dynamic guest speakers with various backgrounds/experience in the local food economy to present and share their dynamic perspectives with our class. Opportunities for field trips and/or hands-on experiences are encouraged.
