Pleased to have completed a very successful Wild Minds program this past summer with a group of 14 amazing youth, mostly from Britannia Secondary. Despite COVID, we were able to run the program with two groups of 7 youth each. The youth, all who face various systemic barriers in their lives, participated in this two week food and ecology program in Strathcona Community Gardens in partnership with the Environmental Youth Alliance . Wild Minds program focused on increasing local biodiversity while learning about ecology, native plant propagation, habitat restoration, pollinators, Indigenous knowledge systems, and food & medicinal plants. The youth developed meaningful connections to the land, while gaining valuable life skills.
