Grants to Stop Violence, Promote Indigenous Healing
2018 Grant Recipients
We are excited to announce the Public Health Association of British Columbia and our Farm to School BC project has been awarded a one time grant of $30,000 to stop violence, promote Indigenous healing from the Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General’s Civil Forfeiture Crime Prevention and Remediation Grant. The funds will be used to create indigenous healing gardens in and around Victoria and Vancouver.
This project will connect students with nature through wild and cultivated foodscapes to help relieve stress and improve students’ mental health, self-esteem and self-sufficiency. The project will increase the number of, and access to, Indigenous food assets at schools, and contribute to the healing and rebuilding of the broader community.
