Anna Kirkpatrick Learn more about me

Inspired by my own two kids, I love creating things, whether it’s with fabric, food or other materials! We also love to read, cycle and explore the outdoors together! I'm an idealist and love thinking about ways to make the world a better place. Not only am I a BC-certified educator, I‘m a certified forest and nature school facilitator. Nature exploration offers so many opportunities for contemplation, joy and learning! I’ve worked as an educator for more than a decade in a variety of settings including camps, libraries, schools and nature programs. I believe that learning always happens best through connection and community. Some of my most profound learning experiences have occurred in unconventional settings: weeding cabbages, cycling a country road in Albania, or route finding on a wilderness trail.

I've travelled across Canada by bus and train.
