We are interested in hosting teacher candidates interested in using gardens as classroom spaces for first nation plant use. During the three-week program the garden will be looked at for potential and educational programing.

Second candidate will work with our school programs to include First People's perspectives / designs and delivers curriculum-based programs for young people and develops resources to support the program delivery.
