Hands On Learning
NEATfx offers in-class programming from kindergarten through Grade 12, and includes topics such as resource conservation, nature exploration, ecosystems, as well as, more traditional topics like recycling, composting, and the 3R’s. Our lesson plans are developed by our on-staff teacher and meet the learning outcomes and core competencies of the Province of British Columbia. Educators are invited to utilize our programming in their classrooms to supplement their existing curriculum and in some cases NEAT’s staff is also available to deliver programming based around consumerism, energy conservation, climate change, waste reduction, composting, worm keeping, habitat & ecosystem, decomposition, boreal forest, recycling and recycled art.
Camp Wildlings is an outdoor, child-led, nature based day camp that operates out of Fish Creek in partnership with the City of Fort St John and Northern Lights College.

Food Secure Kids
Companion planting, food origins & sustainability
Food Secure Kids is a K-6 school program that works with each classroom to explore local food security. The program strives to be as holistic and interconnected as it possibly can, utilizing local food resources and discussing local transportation and climate concerns. We have designed the program to use food security as the core lens which drives further exploration of pollinators, transportation, food miles, and carbon footprints, healthy eating, consumerism, climate change, and reuse.
NEAT provides four in-class sessions to each classroom in participating schools along with supplemental lesson plans for teachers to utilize between our visits. Students make art to decorate their gardens, venture into the community to “plant it forward”, and build relationships with the local food system. We also provide garden maintenance throughout the summer, weeding, watering, and harvesting.
Throughout the years, we have seen children and teachers become more and more engaged in the Food Secure Kids curriculum. They have become more aware of where their food comes from and what they need to do to help support food security in their community.
