Located in the beautiful Spallumcheen Valley, a 3 acre hobby farm is the venue for some unique events for indigenous youth and other youth at risk, accessible and inclusive of people with varying abilities. The farm has both indoor and outdoor facilities for workshops and a myriad of inspirational materials, vistas and subjects – all closely monitored by Jack the Donkey and Trevor the Goat.
The Society has managed arts, cultural, environmental and skills link projects for youth at risk in the north Okanagan since 2010. This year our programs have been a fusion of cultural learning, artistic expression and farm experience. We learned about native plants and the history of the Okanagan and Secwepemc Nations in Spallumcheen and celebrated their culture with youth from local communities. We thank everyone who participated in our programs and we look forward to next year.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia
