Hi! I’m Allison and I joined Seeds of Diversity in 2019 to help grow the School Food Gardens program. As a PhD Candidate in Community psychology, I am so excited to be able to continue the work I started through a scan of school gardens in Waterloo Region that helped create this project. One of the things I appreciate most about working with Seeds of Diversity and the School Food Gardens program is the chance to connect research and action to keep growing and improving the work we do. I love working with schools to help them plan and build their dream gardens, and connecting with youth learning about all of the ways we can create change in our food systems.

Hi everyone! I’m Rayna and I joined Waterloo Region School Food Gardens back in 2019 as a summer student while finishing up my BASc. in Child, Youth, and Family at the University of Guelph. In addition to being a Program Developer with WRSFG, I am also the Media and Promotions Coordinator for Seeds of Diversity and I study Food Security & Urban Agriculture through Ryerson University.

Some of my main responsibilities here at WRSFG include communications, volunteer coordination, and resource development. This project means a lot to me because our industrialized food systems are neither healthy or sustainable and we have the opportunity to inspire change. I’m proud to be part of our growing efforts to empower young people across Ontario in food systems learning.

Hi! I’m Rimal. I joined the Waterloo Region School Food Gardens Project back as a summer student in 2019 and have continued supporting the team ever since!

I have enjoyed working on this project because it’s a great work environment and I believe it is for a wonderful cause. As an amature gardener, I was enthused to hear about an idea of teaching students to garden. One of the several things I like about working with WRSFG is the variety of projects I get to work on — social media planning, content creation, newsletters, organizing a school food farmer’s market, website posts. Outside of this work, I am a full time student at the University of Waterloo and I like to attend to my garden, go running and bake. I hope you have a fun time exploring our website!
