Project Highlights
The Learning Garden

In the summer of 2021, the Yukon Literacy Coalition developed and built a Learning Garden adjacent to the Pioneer Hotel in Shipyards Park in Whitehorse. It was built with guidance from Master Gardeners Agnes Seitz, Gertie Scharrer, Randy Lewis and Marc Boulerice. The garden will provide an opportunity for people to learn about planting, maintaining and harvesting a garden. The vision is to have family literacy programming, workshops for adults, and teachings about traditional healing plants.

Community Literacy

Darcy, the community facilitator in Dawson has started a sewing program this winter. The hope of being able to sew baby bonnets, children’s mitts and toques and traditional anoraks. We look forward to hopefully being able to offer the sewing program to members of the public in Dawson as soon as it is safe to do so.

Winter Fun at the Family Literacy Centre

At the FLC, we haven’t let the pandemic get in the way of families learning and playing together. We’ve set-up a broad selection of ready-to-go crafts and activities, just for you! Pick-up a tray, have a seat, and have fun. Colour-by-number; paint wood; explore magnetism make Oobleck, and much more. There’s something for everyone!
