I was asked by Kootenay Lake/School District 8 wanted to showcase the innovative approach that Teresa Olleck, a grade one teacher from South Nelson Elementary School, takes to teach her students about nature and community. It’s no coincidence that my kids are in her class – it was an absolute pleasure seeing a master teacher in action alongside my children and their classmates over the course of the school year. “The Forest Garden” video follows the 21 students and their teacher on their weekly trips to the community garden space where they learn how to steward a public space and find delight in the animals and plants of the garden.

The community showed up in force to support our latest film and we were thrilled that Knowledge Network came to town to host two free sold out screenings on May 28th. Thank you to everyone who made it a special night for Nelson and the Kootenays. I’ve never been more grateful to live here.
