With a visit from a local ethnobotanist from the Sto:lo Nation, students at Vedder Elementary learned about plants traditionally used by First Nations people in their region. Motivated to share their learnings with other students, staff, and local community members, the Go Wild project team of students built a garden to showcase native plants for future lessons both in and out of the classroom.
“I learned about different plants traditionally used by the Sto:lo people. This project was very interesting and helped me connect more with our garden.”
