Growing Under Glass is a free, curriculum-based field trip program offered to grade 3 classes from high priority neighbourhoods in Toronto at the Allan Gardens Children’s Conservatory from November through February. This curriculum-linked soil and plant program features immersive, hands-on learning. Students meet decomposers, plant a cutting to take back to school and tour the five greenhouses. Transportation is included.
TDSB classes are eligible to book if their school falls between 1-100 on the most recent Learning Opportunity Index. TCDSB classes are eligible to book if their school has been identified as high needs by the Catholic School Board.
