Wild Minds Youth Gardening Program

The Wild Minds Youth Gardening Project helped to create an ecologically rich forest food garden area as part of the existing Strathcona Community Gardens. The forest food garden will provide edge habitat to support increased bio-diversity and habitat for animal critters.


Re-wilding of urban spaces can support food production, but will also create opportunities for youth to connect to the land and animals that we depend on. Youth gained a greater understanding of a food garden and an awareness of the importance of ecological integration, the nurturing of animal habitat, which in turn can support healthier food production along with many other ecosystem values.
