Our work depends on community connections! We have some amazing partnerships that enable us to do our work in food system education and ecosystem restoration as well as raising awareness about the importance of W̱SÁNEĆ plants, land and culture.
The W̱SÁNEC School Board hosts PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ at ȽÁU,WELṈEW̱ Tribal School in Brentwood Bay, BC (W̱SÁNEĆ territory). ȽÁU,WELṈEW̱ Tribal School offers students a cultural education in addition to the standard provincial curriculum, emphasizing the revitalization of the SENĆOŦEN language as well as traditional skills and practices. Together we are raising up generations of W̱SÁNEĆ youth with hands-on experience growing traditional & healthy foods and restoring native ecosystems!
We are so happy to partner with Dr Nick Claxton and Maeve Lydon from the Living Lab network to do our ȾIKEL Restoration Project on school grounds!
We are a network of many! HÍSW̱ḴE to all the wonderful organizations that donate food, supplies, time and volunteers to help us make our events, programs and projects a success each year!
