What We Do
All of Groundbreakers educational programs focus on active, hands-on workshops and experiences that teach children and youth how to plant, grow, harvest, cook, and, best of all, eat local food.
This is Groundbreakers' newest educational program that is growing in popularity. It combines outdoor and place based learning using local wild food as the focus for cultural and ecosystem experiential learning. Groundbreakers Facilitators bring K-7 classes out to local forests to teach about wild plants and foods through sensory exploration. In the outdoors students learn to identify plants, forage, prepare, cook and eat foods from our wild spaces.
This program brings local food and local food knowledge directly to elementary students through experiential learning workshops on understanding where our food comes from, meeting local producers, gardening and caring for school gardens, and taking part in the harvesting, cooking, and eating of locally grown foods.
