So here are our top 10 highlights for 2018. It was hard to narrow down the many positive projects that we were involved in, so we threw in an extra highlight just for fun.
1. Summer Wild Minds
Year three of our summer Wild Minds project brought 14 youth came together to explore, learn, play, and work in the beautiful Strathcona and Cottonwood Community garden in Vancouver’s Strathcona inner city neighbourhood. This program partnership with Environmental Youth Alliance is certainly a highlight of the year with its focus on supporting youth immersion and connection with urban wilderness. Along with hands on skill building work, youth helped nurture and re-wild a beautiful community garden space, transforming it into a more diverse ecosystem. The success of the program is most evident in the youth’s enthusiasm for learning and working.
