Groundbreakers

Mission/Vision

Groundbreakers has a simple and clear mission: to get children outside, growing and eating local fruit and vegetables.

And there’s more, too. We would love to build A GARDEN IN EVERY SCHOOL. We currently manage 3 elementary school gardens in Smithers and Telkwa. More are needed.

We want to develop healthy communities with strong local economies and a sense of environmental responsibility by supporting food production close to home. Here in the Bulkley Valley, we’re a long way from the developed Lower Mainland and it’s our vision to make sure our communities are self-reliant and sustainable. This starts with teaching children about where their food comes from and the step by step approach to growing food.
