Are you a farmer located in BC wondering how to honour the Indigenous lands you steward? kinSHIFT hosts a beautiful online training about cultivating stronger relationships with Indigenous peoples and places, and we’ve received funds to subsidize the cost for BC farmers.

About the Training

The workshops are a 4-part series called “Elements of Truth: Before Reconciliation”. The next round’s dates are on Fridays: September 30th, October 7th, 14th, and 21st from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. PST.

Learn, ask questions, and make mistakes in a safer environment, while building a foundation for engaging meaningfully with Indigenous peoples. An experiential workshop series of 4 x 2.5 hour workshops guided by Indigenous values: reciprocity, inclusion, curiosity, and humility:

  1. Earth: Impacts of Colonization
  2. Air: Expanding Perspectives
  3. Fire: Awareness of Power and Privilege
  4. Water: Shared Responsibilities

We encourage you to attend all four workshops in the series (Earth, Air, Fire and Water) but the series is designed so that you can learn, participate, and contribute to any workshop regardless of whether you are a new or returning participant.
