BV GroundbreakersLocal Food - Know It, Sow It, Grow It, Eat It!

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.

Groundbreakers Wild

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.
