Our Education Team facilitated six environmental education professional development workshops for teachers in May. The workshops covered topics such as building a routine to take your class outside regularly and connections to the new BC curriculum. Their goal is to expand this Pro-D training to all teachers by 2020.

As I stood on the shores of the Peace River in Northern BC this past spring, I was reminded of the incredible diversity of land and water we hold here in beautiful BC. Our children and future generations deserve to experience all of this amazing biodiversity. They deserve to know where they live and develop a connection to the place they call home.

There are two worlds: the modern world of science and technology, and the ancient world where we use our wild instincts to survive and understand what is happening around us. It's time to ignite our wild instincts once again.

As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.

At the Compost Education Centre, we "grow soil." We grow nutrient dense healthy foods, and have biodiverse gardens, and that’s because we are concerned with the life that is within our soil. Soil is an extremely important part of the food system. And it’s often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.
