Vanier College

Summer Sustainability Camp

Vanier College Poster(2).jpg

    Education regarding sustainable practices and growing methods is essential to any community, especially in an education system that can lack outdoor, practical lessons with plants. It is for this reason we have super excited to offer this camp Summer 2018.

   Designed for teenagers, this interactive and hands-on course will give learners valuable knowledge about the wide variety of practices that can be used to enhance our human and natural ecosystems. Students will gain confidence about their own practical skills of cooking, gardening, and wilderness survival.

   Students will work in teams and create do-it-yourself projects to take home. Most activities will be on campus, and every week students will travel off-campus to a green spot around Montreal for more studies. Some homework will be given in a form of a learning journal. Students must enroll for a minimum of 2 weeks and have a fluent level of English.

Upcoming workshops...

We currently have several workshops coming up in Montreal for the Spring and Summer months. Please see our facebook page for more information.

 This tour is open to the complete herbal newcomer or those with existing green thumbs - We work with all knowledge levels. First we will start in a nearby park, introduce ourselves and share our first cup of herbal tea (grown at our soon to be certified organic farm.) In the park we will learn some of the processes to aid plant identification and the more common plants and trees growing around us. After the park we will begin to explore the back streets of Montreal, searching for those plants we have just learned about and learning about their history, cultural context and medicinal or culinary uses. We will finish with a second tea tasting, a summation of what we've learnt and the knowledge of some new plant allies that we can find growing all around us.  No registration necessary, suggested donation $10-$15
