Plants for Food and Fibre (G7)

Exploring a World Without Plants

It’s easy to take plants for granted – they’re just there. But what would the world be like without them? We answer this question by exploring the many ways we rely on plants. Teachers choose between the scavenger hunt in the Garden of Life (inside) to discover exotic plants that provide us with everything from chocolate to lipstick or the one in the Dorothy Harvie Gardens (outside) to discover some of the different native plants that the First Nations utilized.
