LOOKING FOR LAND

Currently Four Nations provides exceptional indigenous cultural education and wellness programs in an engaging, safe and inspiring environment to people of all four colours from a seven acre property in Vallican, BC, located in the beautiful Slocan Valley. However, they are currently looking for a new home!

Four Nations is seeking a minimum of 5 acres where they could have a garden and undertake permaculture and wild harvesting practices. Their dream property would have housing for staff (3 bed house with space for an office, and possibly even a small cabin for more staff to live), an outdoor area, and covered areas, such as a carport or barn, for programming.

Due to the nature of the work Four Nations does, they have community members coming to the property on a regular basis for events, as well as education, recreation and wellness programs, so sufficient space for parking would be necessary as well as easily accessible year round. Ideally, a property backing onto crown land with a water source would be a huge asset.
