Welcome! This page is designed to help you learn about wild edible plants on Vancouver Island. You can begin by learning about the basic structure of a vascular plant, then navigate through the plant pages. Each page has the names of the plant including scientific names, Aboriginal names, and other names, a description of the plant, where to find them, as well as a traditional Aboriginal use of the plant.
This page is designed for grades 7-10, but can be enjoyed and used by all!
Here is a little bit of information about me...
Hi! My name is Ms.Scherman. I am from Saskatchewan and have moved to Vancouver Island to become a teacher. I got my degree in Native Studies because I believe that Aboriginal knowledge and content in the education system is important . My field of interest is in Social Issues in Inuit societies and food sustainability. I created this website because it integrates Aboriginal content with plants and food sustainability.
