Prevention and Preservation: Digital Harvest Stories

The Prevention and Preservation project, funded by the Vancouver Foundation is a collaboration between the OCPHR, the Vancouver Island Coastal Communities Indigenous Foods Network (VICCIFN), VIHA and the Canadian Diabetes Association. Over the next two years, the project will work to bring together First Nations youth and elders from across Vancouver Island to learn about traditional foods and life-ways and to gain skills in the creation of digital stories. Participants will then return to their communities to create their own digital stories, showcasing experiences and strengths in their communities related to healthy living and traditional life-ways.
