Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge and thank the W̱ SÁNEĆ people on whose traditional territory we live.

The W̱SÁNEĆ people have lived and worked on this land since time immemorial .We acknowledge with the respect that our work occurs on the traditional land of the W̱ SÁNEĆ
peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.”

We envision a vibrant, nurturing, multigenerational, and inclusive group of people coming together to cultivate an affordable, barrier-free, pleasurable, healthy, accessible and food
secure community.

The purposes of the Society are:

  1.  To promote quality of life and food security through gardening as a basic life skill and horticultural education in the Municipality of Central Saanich.
  2. To provide individual plots for personal use and communal garden space for local food security
  3. To support relevant community events.
  4. To provide, to the best of our ability, a venue that is universally designed, accessible, barrier-free, inclusive, pleasurable, healthy, inclusive and affordable, which is available to
    all members on an equal basis, including, but not limited to, accordance with The United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Disabled and the United Nations Declaration on
    the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

With the help of community partnerships, we will strive to educate and empower people to successfully grow their own food and foster relationships within our community. We aim to create a space that has both communal growing spaces and individual plots with some space dedicated to charitable donations. We aim to foster community through growing food year round. We are dedicated to incorporating nature and nurturing into the garden with an emphasis on sustainability by using low impact environmental practices.
