Julie,

I had the pleasure of joining you for your March 26th, Sunday Edible Plant Walk. I was most impressed! You have an obvious passion for plants, speaking about them with obvious fondness and awe, and a deep respect for First Nations culture. As well, you convey information about trees, shrubs, and flowers in an engaging way. Thank you for using your time and energy on behalf of the natural world.

Some of our Programs

School Programs

Your class will become immersed in a local landscape to discover the knowledge of First Nations and the early Europeans. Our inter-disciplinary approach teaches:

  1. The human history of the land and early uses of plants.
  2. Inquiry-based learning about plant identification and uses.
  3. Exploratory learning about the relationships between trees, plants, sunlight and the animal interactions within the eco-systems.
  4. The human impact on the landscape over time. How different world views create very different outcomes for a landscape.
