For our Peace Valley Campaigner Galen Armstrong, thinking of the people who are most directly facing the consequences of the Site C dam is what motivates him to keep going. Even if it sometimes feels like the odds are stacked us, what we are doing makes a difference and it's still possible to stop the dam.

At the Compost Education Centre, we "grow soil." We grow nutrient dense healthy foods, and have biodiverse gardens, and that’s because we are concerned with the life that is within our soil. Soil is an extremely important part of the food system. And it’s often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.

One of my favorite things to do with a class is to read them a story. I use stories as a way to introduce myself and to share an important key message about nature and our connection as people to nature. Stories enable children to get hooked and become engaged in a program.

Completing the World’s First International Peace Park
