We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking.  It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator that is delivering the program.

About the Program
This is an opportunity to let students be involved in the planning and creation of a sustainable organic garden as an outdoor classroom at the school. Students will be mapping, studying, designing and creating an edible, native plant organic garden on their school grounds. We will look at composting, a no-dig permaculture garden, mapping and design (creating the garden layout) and growing the plants to go in the outdoor classroom.

About the Community Educator
Shannon Bennett has a Bsc in Earth Sciences and has been working in environmental education since the early 80's as a Park Naturalist in Alberta and BC Parks. She loves to inspire, engage, connect, and motivate students to discover and explore their wild local bioregions, to develop curiosity, knowledge, awareness and appreciation of where they live.
