Junior Green Thumbs® (formerly Edible Classroom) is a passion project run by REALTOR® Laura McBride. It is an inspired hands on initiative that connects elementary school students to nature in an engaging way.
The program provides opportunities for students to experience and participate in essential life skill learning, such as seed starting, basic gardening, meal preparation, carpentry, community outreach and more, all through empowerment.
To make the program useful to teachers, easy to use and within Ontario Curriculum, Laura collaborates with key partners in education, such as Robyn Hadder, Kristy Dale and others. Together with this teacher support, the garden has been integrated into math, language, science, art and health to ensure every teacher who may choose to have a garden in their classroom can use it in the best way for them and their students. The program currently runs in Durham Region, Ontario and supports classrooms from kindergarten to grade 8.
Every home or business that Laura sells, allows another classroom to receive a donated garden. Since 2015, hundreds of Junior Green Thumbs (formerly Edible Classroom) students have benefited. Because the project is funded by Laura and her business, it is thanks to the incredible clients that choose to list or buy a home with Laura McBride, it is able to continue.
