Introducing Tend, Gather and Grow for Tribal Educators

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 the Tend, Gather and Grow Toolkit, a K-12 curriculum that focuses on native and naturalized plants of the Pacific Northwest region. Through hands-on activities, 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. 

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. Learn about how tribal communities are adopting Tend in schools, community workshops, and summer youth programs.
