DECOLONIZING

We acknowledge that we still have a lot to learn, and there is room for improvement. We invite you to join in our journey of truth and reconciliation, decolonization and indigenization.

P’ipa:m Lelum Indigenous Garden

We are starting an Indigenous Garden at Clinton Park Fieldhouse to embody the perspectives and principles of Indigenous culture and teachings on this Land. Most of the plants in the garden are used as food and medicine by the Indigenous people who have been here for millennia. You are welcome to visit and walk gently on Grandmother Earth.

We list out some of the most commonly seen native plants in our community. Click each picture to read more.

*A big thanks to Metis educator and herbalist, Lori Snyder, for sharing her knowledge of native plants and gardening and to EYA (The Environmental Youth Alliance) for supplying us with many of the plants that live here.

Medicine Wheel Garden is coming!

We are expanding our P’ipa:m Lelum Indigenous Garden to build a Medicine Wheel Garden accompanied by a pathway mural.

Come learn about the Indigenous garden expansion at Clinton Park led by Leona Brown & the Waacus Salee team. We welcome your input on the garden design and your ideas to inspire a pathway mural that will accompany the garden.

Friday, June 17th, 2:30 – 4:30 pm
P’ipa:m Lelum – Clinton Park Fieldhouse – 2690 Grant Street, Vancouver BC
