    Food Rescue is a food recovery program. We collect healthy fruits and vegetables that are deemed as surplus and un-salable according to food industry standards and redistribute it to the university community. Food is collected from Nesters Market and redistributed at SFU Burnaby on a weekly basis. 

    How it works

    Drop by our Food Rescue distribution location at the posted date and time, and take home some produce! We will be accepting donations of any amount and will be selling our tote bags on site for $4 each, in case you don't have a bag.

    Make a Cold Frame | Gardening Workshop

     Make_a_Cold_Frame_garden_workshop.jpg

    Curious about how to enjoy produce from your garden year-round? With a bit of shelter you can keep your garden growing straight through the winter months! Join us to learn about how to make protecting covers to extend the growing season.

    We will build cold frames to fit Learning garden boxes (4ft x 3 ft). The workshop is free for all participants. If you currently have a plot at the Learning Garden and would like to keep the cold frame you build for your personal plot, you will be able to do so for $10, to cover the cost of the materials. 

    The workshop is open to students, staff, and faculty - RSVP below to ensure we have enough supplies for every participant!
