BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!

Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.

Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.

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.

We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.

Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at wildvoices@cbeen.org

About the Program
Explore diversity, genetic selection and food security in this introduction to seed saving.  We will go over different types of flowers, botanical terms, how plants produce seeds and selection of varieties.  We will learn how to save seeds from tomatoes, lettuce, peas and squash in hands-on demos for some of these seed types depending on the season.  We will explore the diversity in food plants by human selection on why it might be important to save local varieties of seeds for food security.
