How will Plenty Canada’s project managers utilize the CampUs as a land-based learning centre?
“Plenty Canada's environmental stewardship activities are wide-ranging but all are connected by the foundation of “Two-Eyed Seeing” — weaving Indigenous and Western knowledge systems. The improved and expanded spaces at the CampUs will allow us to bring more people of all ages and backgrounds together to learn on the land about our responsibilities to each other and the natural world. Plenty Canada’s staff is excited to be able to expand our in-person land-based programming with Indigenous communities, local schools, community groups, conservation and environmental organizations, and the general public.”
— Emily Morris, Assistant Manager, Environmental Stewardship
“Plenty Canada is dedicated to intergenerational learning, with programming dedicated to supporting young people as they build their capacity to contribute to society. At the same time, we are always benefitting from their fresh ideas and enthusiasm to make a difference in the world!
“Plenty Canada’s school and youth programming will benefit from all aspects of its CampUs, from the beautiful new accessible bathrooms, sweat lodge, and outdoor classroom, to the leading examples of green building systems supporting the indoor learning spaces that are available to participants.”
— Joanna Jack, Youth Programming Project Manager
"Through our conversations with many leaders working toward Indigenous food sovereignty we learned that gatherings that involve hands-on learning, relationship building, knowledge sharing, and mutual support are very important to their work. The new beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces will allow Plenty Canada to host these gatherings to support these goals.''
