Introducing Tend, Gather and Grow

Facilitated by Kim Gaffi & Charlie Sittingbull, Members of the Tend Curriculum Development Team, and Sponsored by OSPI

Interested in connecting young people to wild edible and medicinal plants and the rich cultural traditions that surround them?

Join us for a 90-minute zoom introductory session to Tend, Gather and Grow, a K-12 curriculum that focuses on native and naturalized plants of the Pacific Northwest region. Students explore themes in wild food traditions, herbal medicine, plant technologies, cultural ecosystems, and tree communities. Northwest Native American plant knowledge and stories are woven throughout the curriculum. The 60+ lessons align with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics (STEAM) education principles and Next Generation Science Standards. The Tend curriculum was designed by a team of Native and non-native educators and is intended for use by Native and non-native educators and their students.

In this free intro session, we will explore the overall structure, goals, and cultural foundations of the curriculum as well as ethical harvest considerations and teaching practices that enhance students’ interaction with the content.
