    Additional Notes

    Located at the Suwa’lkh School in Coquitlam (map), our program space includes a native plant propagation greenhouse, medicine and food gardens, and a seven-acre forest with a forest classroom and a salmon stream. Field trips at Suwa’lkh focus on First People’s ways of knowing, helping students connect with Traditional Ecological Knowledge, in both cultivated and natural food lands. Students will even be able to take a piece of Suwa’lkh back with them in the form of native plants.
