Community Tool Shed

For the past 150 years Lekwungen families have been responding to the impacts of colonization in their homelands. This project creates more spaces for local and visiting peoples to collaborate on long-term decolonizing of the land. Through the community tool shed project, local Indigenous families are providing guidance on priorities and the where, when, and how for visitors to join in this work collectively and respectfully.

The Community Tool Shed & Mapping Project is associated with the Xaxe Tenew Sacred Land Society and VIPIRG. We are continuing to fundraise to buy tools and equipment for invasive species removal and reinstating native plants, including GPS equipment for mapping invasive plants in local “parks” to help plan removal and track effectiveness of different methods over time.
