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 that is delivering the program.

About the Program
Wild edibles exist almost everywhere and are in abundance if you know how to and feel like foraging for them. Edible weeds, flowers and wild herbs were foraged and used as food as well as medicines.

In this field trip, students will learn the ethics of wild foraging, and discover the abundance of edible plants that you can use for food, tea, and ointment in the natural environment near your school. We will identify the plants and discuss their food or medicinal properties. At the end we will have a fun tea party.
