Kitchen Plants Club

Grow food using seeds and scraps from your kitchen!

It's easy to find living things ready to grow in your kitchen, you just need to know where to look! Kids will learn about the biology of plants as we explore which foods can be regrown from leftovers & which seeds are 'hiding' in plain sight. Let’s plant them and see what grows! Join for 1 or all!

Heather Turnbull Learn more about me

As a scientist, I LOVE exploring and learning through hands-on experimenting! Planting seeds and sprouts and watching them grow is one of my favourite things to do. I am an active learner and am currently participating in my MEd, my fourth university degree. I have worked with the Ontario Science Centre, Science North, and as a grade 7 and 8 classroom teacher for many years - all great places to try new things. I believe staying curious is the most important thing people can do!

I like taking pictures of plants, animals, water and sky, then use them to create fun works of art using glass, wood or paint!
