Students will build a learning space that exclusively uses plants native to Manitoba, including sage and sweetgrass. This space will be used to promote holistic health and honour traditional knowledge of Indigenous medicine practices, healthy eating, and sustainable ways of using natural resources.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
