Foodlands Toolkit

We’ve translated learnings from the Foodlands Program’s restoration project along the sc̓e:ɬxʷəyəm (Salmon River)* Corridor into a free resource to support collaborative restoration efforts.

The Toolkit is not an all-knowing document; it is meant to offer guidance and support. We acknowledge that there are diverse ways to develop projects, and we encourage flexibility and creativity in your restoration efforts to ensure they are done thoughtfully and effectively.

As we share this Toolkit, we acknowledge that we, too, are on a learning journey. We hope it serves as a helpful resource for exploring ways to apply UNDRIP principles to your projects, recognizing that understanding and growth are continual processes for all of us.

Please help us continue to learn. If you see a mistake in this resource, or if you have information you’d like to share with us, please do reach out.

*“sc̓e:ɬxʷəy̓əm” is the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ word for the Salmon River. hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ is the Downriver dialect of Halkomelem. Translations provided by Knowledge Keepers and language learners from Kwantlen and Katzie Nations. The sc̓e:ɬxʷəy̓əm is in Langley, in the shared territory of the Kwantlen, Katzie, Semiahmoo and Matsqui Nations.

Thank you to the Real Estate Foundation of BC and the Keta Legacy Foundation (also known as Mountaineers Foundation) for funding the development of this toolkit.
