*This event occurs on unceded Coast Salish Territories*

Join us for this special film screening and knowledge share.
“Tending the Wild” shines light on the environmental knowledge of indigenous peoples across California by exploring how they have actively shaped and tended the land for millennia, in the process developing a deep understanding of plant and animal life. This series examines how humans are necessary to live in balance with nature and how traditional practices can inspire a new generation of Californians to tend their environment.

We will watch the hour long film, followed by discussion and a knowledge share on how to process acorns for flour.

Date: Saturday Nov 18th

Time: 11am to 1pm

Location: 1428 Cedar Cottage Mews, Vancouver

Brought to you by the The Cedar Cottage Food Network Seed Saving Group, in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library – kensington branch. This will also function as an ongoing seed swap so bring your extra seeds and seedlings to share with the community!
