Stapleton, Sarah Riggs – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
While food is an exceedingly rich area for environmental education, I caution environmental educators and researchers from moving too quickly into messaging about what people "should" eat, given the many complexities around food and identity. Eating, as an inherently identity-laden practice, is fraught with complicated meanings,…

Reis, Kimberley; Ferreira, Jo-Anne – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
Can community and school gardens help people learn to build social resilience to potential food shortages? We seek to address this question through an examination of the ways in which gardens can teach individual and community resiliency in times of emergency, pockets of food insecurity, and the challenges presented by climate change. We focus on…

Nugent, Clare; Beames, Simon – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
While nature environments afford food for human consumption, there is a dearth of empirical inquiry that considers foraging as a sustainable, seasonal practice that builds human-nature relations. This gap in the literature is particularly apparent in early childhood education literature. Drawing on observations recorded at two forest-based nature…

Lloro-Bidart, Teresa – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
Drawing on a multispecies ethnographic encounter with a physically disabled feral kitten, Whiskey, I take an intersectional theoretical approach to place disability studies in conversation with ecofeminist perspectives. In so doing I ask: How does a culture that produces disabled and unwanted humans render animals deserving of the same label? And…

Judson, Gillian – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2015
Many have observed that the curriculum is a mile wide and scarcely an inch deep. This article provides a rationale for including in-depth study of a place-based/local topic within educational programs aimed at cultivating ecological understanding. Following a brief exploration of some of the obstacles to in-depth learning, it describes the ways in…

I share findings from an action research project with Kitsilano Neighbourhood House in Vancouver, British…

Weston, Anthony – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
Environmentalism's wider and wilder possibilities today appear as regions of seeming darkness that bracket or frame acceptable environmental thinking. One of these barely-mentionable darknesses is outer space--the cosmos. Another is the inner and chthonic powers of the land and natural beings generally. This essay aims to bring these two kinds of…

Gaylie, Veronica – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
In cultures of excess, the challenge is to see. In a time of climate change, how will humans find the questions, the reflections, the poems, or the prayers that will bring ecological justice and peace? This writing begins a response to the call made on the last day of our gathering at Loon Lake for a "commonist manifesto" around…
