Tend, Gather & Grow Teacher Institute

Join the Tend, Gather, & Grow Community of Teachers!

Immerse yourself in the wondrous world of plants. A dynamic team of educators will share lessons, games, art activities, Salish stories, and other educational tools that build “the art of noticing.”  How can we wake up the inner storyteller and artist? How can we help students engage all of their senses and attune with the gifts of the seasons? Teachers will learn tips for both teaching outside and bringing nature into the classroom. Each participant will receive:

  • A copy of the Tend, Gather and Grow Plant Guide – a comprehensive curriculum covering 20 Northwest plants with over 35 lessons
  • Hands-on experience identifying, harvesting, and using wild plants
  • Samples of wild foods and plant medicines
  • Lunch from the GRuB Farm
  • Continuing education credits for teachers

Instructors include Kim Gaffi, Charlie Sittingbull, Annie Brule, Elise Krohn, and Tamar Krames.The cost for this event is $300


Tend, Gather and Grow is a project dedicated to educating youth about wild edible and medicinal plants and the rich cultural traditions that surround them. We offer teacher training to equip teachers with knowledge and curriculum to bring back to their students.
