We are growing on unceded Coast Salish territories.

This initiative works within the territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən, SENĆOŦEN, and Hul'q'umi'num speaking peoples. Within this are the territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən (Songhees), Xwsepsum (Esquimalt), W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱ (Tsawout), W̱SIKEM (Tseycum), Sc'ianew (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke, Pacheedaht, MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat), Pune’laxutth’ (Penelekut), Stz'uminus (Chemainus), Ts’uubaa-asatx (Lake Cowichan), Halalt, Lyackson, sc̓əwaθən məsteyəxʷ (Tsawwassen), SEMYOME (Semiahmoo), and Quw'utsun (Cowichan) Nations.

The presence of settlers (non-Indigenous peoples who live on these lands) is not neutral; it continues to have devastating impacts on many aspects of life for Indigenous peoples. Many settler practices, including the seeds planted, the forms of education, and methods of growing food come to these lands through the ongoing process of colonialism. Colonialism has suppressed local well-being by harming Indigenous food systems, whether they be land-based or of the sky and sea. We honour the stewards of these lands, including the people, plants and animals, who have an intimate knowledge of the foods of this land. We hold them up for the work they continuously do to protect and connect with the land.
