Kaylie Higgs

Farm Educator

Kaylie has always had a love for and connection to the natural world. Growing-up as a home learner, with the “world as her classroom,” she spent countless hours exploring forests, shorelines, farms, and mountains along the west coast of BC.

These experiences developed not only a deep love and curiosity for the ecology and communities of these places, but also inspired an ongoing journey of learning and caring that has included: taking field courses on the west coast of Vancouver Island, working as a children’s program leader at the UBC Farm, coordinating the environmental justice collective at Capilano University, working with Soaring Eagle Nature School, studying natural horsemanship, completing a seven month practicum in sustainable agriculture, and exploring topics that include environmental biology, bird identification, and the relationships between plants and people. She loves to share these interests and passions with others, especially children, who inspire her with their enthusiasm, curiosity, observations, and new perspectives.

When not learning new things or playing outdoors, Kaylie can often be found knitting, working with clay, singing, playing music, and spending time with family, friends, and her family’s beloved Quarter Horse, Albert.
