Know Your Roots Summer Camp

Programming for Know Your Roots (KYR) is all in the name. It’s a week of exploring where our food comes from, the journey it takes from plough to plate – as well as the role we play as individuals in our food system. Each week, campers will have opportunities to explore our Learning Garden, cook alongside the Growing Chefs! team of professional Chefs, engage in food focused activities and, of course, try some new, delicious foods!

Something brand new for 2021 is that Know Your Roots camp will be run out of our new location at The Grove at the Western Fair District, which we share with many other food-focused organizations and businesses. The Grove will give us much more space in which to run our camp activities, still ensuring all social distancing and safety guidelines can be strictly followed.

We are currently reimagining the details for Know Your Roots to best align with current public health guidelines. Camp will begin each day at 9am and conclude at 4pm. Once we have established our program structure and daily schedule we will provide updates to all registrants to tell you more about all of the exciting things that campers will be participating in this year! Our goal is to have participants cooking as much as possible while maintaining the Covid-19 recommendations and best practices laid out by both the Provincial Government and The Middlesex London Health Unit. If you have any questions regarding how we will keep KYR2021 Covid-19 safe, please reach out via email to
