Celebration Book

Feasting for change

This book “Feasting For Change” celebrates some of the Indigenous Foods of Vancouver Island. It was created through the teachings and leanings from our 40 events and as inspired by the diversity and wisdom of the knowledge keepers in all the communities. We know we have only begun to understand the different uses and all the teachings around these foods; this first edition is a living document and will be added to over time.

Our hope is that you are inspired to join us in celebrating the food, land and culture of Vancouver Island.

This book shares stories, teachings and tips on eating food through the seasons. Follow Feasting For Change through Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall and learn more about Salmon, Plants, Teas, Clams, Mussels, Gooseneck Barnacles, BBQ fish, bread and more!
