Salal + Cedar is launching Sacred Earth Camp, an environmental justice program for youth and young adults. The community that supports these young people are gathering to share food together, to send them on their journey with our prayers and support, and to begin by learning with them some of the colonization history of this Coast Salish territory.

Farm Tours Start at 4:30
Potluck 5:30
Evening Program 6:30
End Program about 8:30

We will be participating together in the KAIROS Blanket Exercise–an experiential tool to explore the historic and present relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people on Turtle Island. All ages are welcome, those 10 and over will probably have the best comprehension.
