Wendel Vistan (she/her)
Board Member, At Large

Wendel is a first-generation settler from the Philippines who was raised on her grandfather’s rice farm on the traditional land of the Indigenous Aeta Magbukún. She grew up as an uninvited guest in the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the scəw̓aθən (Tsawwassen), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), and other Coast Salish Peoples where she was able to explore her expanding interest in nature and community. She is currently a student at KPU studying Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems learning about long-term sustainability and the injustices in our food system. In her spare time, Wendel loves to go on bike rides, make art, eat delicious food, and go on walks around her neighbourhood admiring people’s gardens.
