This session will showcase a recent school based planning resource created by Farm to School BC and provincial partners that highlights multiple indigenous plants education programs from across the province. The session intends to showcase the programs that were highlighted in the resources document, and act as an official launch of the resource. The goal of this session is to inspire and support teachers, school administrators, Elders, community members, and Knowledge Keepers who are interested in developing similar initiatives connected to K-12 schools. This session was created with input from partners across multiple indigenous plants / foods programs, including Indigenous educators, school district administration, community members and cultural Knowledge Keepers.
This session is full.
