The BCFSN annual Gathering is a celebration of our food systems and a coming-together of traditional and indigenous food skills with research and new developments on the ground. It is an empowering and fun way to meet some of the amazing people around BC working in the front lines of food security and food sovereignty.
This year the theme of the Gathering is Reconciling Cultures and Re-connecting Foodscapes. The Gathering will be an opportunity for various cultures to come together with the Syilx and other Indigenous people to explore together what it means to truly reconcile with the first peoples of the land and water. Participants will also dive into what it means to reconnect with and honour the foodscape: the lands and waters that are so vital to our food systems and community well-being.
Several CRFAIR staff members will be attending and we hope you can too. Register here.
