“FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Students at Robert Ogilvie, Duncan Cran, and Ecole Central will be taking on more responsibility in contributing directly to food security in Fort St. John.

It’s part of NEAT’s Food Security Program, which teaches children where their food comes from, and how to grow themselves. Ecole Central participated in the pilot project last year.”

NEAT is a non-profit group dedicated to helping residents, schools, and businesses live a greener life in British Columbia. Primarily, NEAT provides environmental education, but also assists organizations and institutions develop strategic plans to reduce waste and conserve resources.
