GROWING TOGETHER

A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT TO GET GROWING

COVID-19 has us separated, but that doesn't mean that we can't support one another to grow our own food. In a time of uncertainty it can be empowering and grounding to grow food to feed ourselves and those we live with. 

Who is behind this? We are a group of organizations from across the Victoria capital region - Coast Salish territories. We want to come together to discuss how best to support our communities in these unprecedented times. We want to share resources that can help folks grow their own food!

This website will be the hub for this initiative. We look forward to curating educational materials, and resource listings, as well as promoting opportunities for mentorship and volunteerism. Stay tuned!

We are growing on unceded Coast Salish* territories.

The presence of settlers (non-Indigenous peoples who live on these lands) is not neutral; it has had and continues to have devastating impacts on many aspects of life for Indigenous peoples. Many (settler) practices, including the seeds we plant, the ways we educate, and our methods of growing food came to these lands through the ongoing process of colonialism. Settler colonialism has suppressed local well-being by harming Indigenous food systems, whether they be land-based or of the sky and sea. Let us hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.

* The term Coast Salish is used to encompass a number of Indigenous peoples, including Esquimalt, Hul’qumi’num, Klahoose, Lekwungen, MALAXEt, Musqueam, OStlq’emeylem, Pentlatch, Scia’new (Beecher Bay), Sliammon, Shishalh, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw, Stó:lo, Straits, Tsleil-Waututh, T’Sou-ke, W̱SÁNEĆ, and Xwemalhkwu.
