Our mission is to bring children into the “outdoor classroom” where they connect with the earth and their community. Our vision can be summed up in a simple equation:
“kids + gardens + healthy food = stronger communities”
The Richmond Schoolyard Society has partnered with the Shaughnessy and Greenacres Golf Clubs to hold the first annual golf tournamnet and dinner.

Students in Richmond are learning about food production and sustainability, but as reporter Keanan Kipp found out, it's not in a conventional classroom.
