Learning with the Land and Understanding the Soil Toward Refugee Integration and Diversity (SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, 2022-current, PI)

Project Website:

This project is in partnership with our community partners (Biogeoscience Institute/University of Calgary, CCIS, Mount Royal University, TELUS Spark Science Center, The Immigrant Education Society, YYC Growers and Distributors) and has developed around our common vision: 1) to design and study land-based learning opportunities for refugee children and youth, 2) to deepen teacher candidates’ understanding of the soil, ecosystem and biodiversity, and 3) to advocate for socio-environmental justice and (bio)diversity on a public regenerative farm together with children and youth.
