So we’re thinking of opening a little garden/camp on the edge of Lake Children’s Garden Office.

A Cold But Adventurous Day In High Park

One of the many amazing things about High Park (aside from the awesome Children’s Garden and Teaching Kitchen 😉 ) is the variety of wildlife you’ll see.

Warm Up With A Little Sage Tea

Sage is a pungent herb most of us associate with stuffing and turkey but it’s a much more flexible seasoning then most folks think!
