The provincial government has recently put together an initiative to promote outdoor activities among our youth in Ontario.
Finally! In my opinion the current generation of kids are missing out on the richly diverse experience that is our outdoor environment.
In support of this, they have developed a website outlining a vast array of activities children can take part in. This is a good first step, and here is hoping they are able to implement activities, outreach programs and connect with other existing programs to actually get kids outside.
oh BTW, kudos to the website for including “Harvest something to eat”. As a forager, I am happy to see this way of life promoted.
Cheers from the Wild
It is sad that we need such a charter, but apparently we do. I also forage, but all my children are grown, so I have no little ones to learn with me. Look forward to reading more of your posts, especially since we inhabit the same province.
Thanks for the comment! Good to hear there are more forgers in Ontario!
