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 the Tribal School in Brentwood Bay, BC (W̱SÁNEĆ territory). The W̱SÁNEC School Board 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 happy to partner with the Living Lab Network, a coalition of university and indigenous community partners dedicated to ecological restoration, indigenous resurgence, and aligning institutional resources with community needs. Check out Living Lab's newsletter!
We are a network of many! HÍSW̱ḴE to all the wonderful organizations that donate resources, food, supplies, time, and volunteers to help us make our events, programs and projects a success each year!
