Canada 150+ grant
The na’ʔk’ʷulamən garden is the recipient of a Canada 150 grant of $5,000. Thank you to the City of Kelowna for supporting this important community project that will provide a welcome new cultural space for the Okanagan College community and the public.
This Canada 150th anniversary project will confirm that the Okanagan is a community that cherishes Syilx cultural practices, recognizes the expertise and knowledge of the uses of these plants by the Syilx people, and establishes a teaching and learning space that all can embrace. The garden will showcase to the community at-large how local plants were used and valued in the past and still are today.
