Wild Minds Rewilding Project – Day 5. I have always loved visiting Strathcona and Cottonwood Gardens. They are a rare gem in Vancouver. But, I am seeing the garden from a new perspective, being able to work with youth in this magnificent place. The spaces to explore, the learning opportunities, and the simple beauty of these gardens and wild areas make these gardens a particularly unique experience for the youth and that have, I think, got them excited about gardening and ecology. They are really pumped up and having fun.
Today, we worked in the youth garden again, weeding and cleaning up, went on a medicinal herb walk, visited the herb garden and made herbal tea
