LAND STEWARDSHIP TRAINING WEEKEND #4: 

TEND 

sat + sun, july 13-14

10am-4pm 

sliding scale: $150-300  

In this immersive weekend, we learn to tend to plants and local ecologies in the mid-season: pruning, propagation, weeds, pest + disease, and harvest.

This is part of an 8-month holistic training in land stewardship and horticulture—plus practices for attunement with self + the wider ecology. Over a full growing season, you will learn how to tend land well and fall madly in love with plants. 

This weekend is a threshold for anyone ready to walk a more ecological path — gardeners, farmers, herbalists, homesteaders, environmentalists, nature lovers and more.  Learn practical skills as you practice deep listening with land and explore your ancestral relationship to place, all in a supportive community.

THE OVERVIEW

The Tending Alive Project is an experiment in restoring the people's hands to the soil and soul. We evoke a profound cultural remembering of how to tend our local ecosystems back to life in these complex times.

THE PROGRAM

In our immersive weekends, participants will grow a deep foundation of skills to partner with their landscapes in ecological ways.

We will dig our hands into land stewardship topics over a full growing season:

  • orienting to a landscape
  • pruning
  • propagation
  • soil + compost
  • water
  • ecology
  • ​wild + introduced plants
  • garden planning + planting
  • medicinal plants
  • organic gardening
  • ecological design
  • restoration
  • wildlife tracking
  • climate resilience
  • fire ecology
  • ...and more.

OUR LENS + PHILOSOPHY

This program roots in the truth that wilderness is a myth and—as Indigenous communities demonstrate today as since time immemorial—humans can be beneficial to ecologies. Further, that active and informed participation can lead to more resilient, vibrant landscapes for all. We challenge the word "homesteading" as a way to describe living closely to the land, and look to deconstruct our relationship to land so we can find a more genuinely relational way forward.

Our learning holds a lens of settler responsibility and dreaming toward intersectional liberation. We hold respect and discernment when sharing knowledge rooted in Coast Salish cultural plant traditions and technologies—especially in wildtending, restoration and wild plant lessons.

A portion of ticket sales is redistributed to the Tend, Gather and Grow Project—a wild food, medicine and cultural ecology curriculum for K-12 learners centering Coast Salish communities. Their work is a powerful catalyst to cultural sovereignty, and a foundation to my awareness of traditional land tending practices. The % donated will depend on enrollment and be calculated in response to Tend's suggested levels of financial support.

OUR INSTRUCTORS

Katie Vincent (they/she) is the primary instructor for the Land Stewardship Training, as well as all add-on courses. We will welcome a few guest instructors over the season to deepen our learning in special topics.

The plants and landscapes we learn from will be our biggest teachers.
