Seed Generation


SEED GENERATION

Want to learn about Indigenous land stewardship? Looking for new skills for your resume? Through this program, you’ll connect with Indigenous knowledge keepers and Elders and learn about traditional foods and medicines, land stewardship, decolonization, and Indigenous cultures and histories. You’ll also help to restore wildlife habitat along Still Creek – one of the only streams left in Vancouver – while learning about the Indigenous history of this waterway and helping wildlife thrive in our city. This program includes two camping trips: An one-night urban camping trip at UBC Farm and a two-night wilderness camping trip outside of Vancouver. This program is run in partnership with Red Fox Health Living Society.

 

This program is open to Indigenous & non-Indigenous youth age 14-18.
Lunch is provided & bus tickets are available upon request.

COVID-19 UPDATE: EYA is planning for in-person summer programs with some changes to keep you and your family safe, including small group sizes, outdoor activities only, 2-metre physical distancing, no sharing of tools or gloves, frequent hand-washing, and safely-prepared pre-packaged lunches. We’re carefully monitoring updates from health authorities – if it isn’t possible to run in-person programs, we will run virtual programs instead.
