We would like to acknowledge that this event is held on the traditional and unceded territories of the Stó:lō people. We are deeply grateful for the chance to live, learn and share knowledge on this land.
Living Food-stainably is a free event put on by the youth of Fraser Valley connecting children, families and residents to workshops educating on ways we can maximize our local food systems.

Sustainability can be practiced in the smallest of ways, including our own habits in how we participate in our food system - such as how we grow or buy, preserve, and dispose of the food we use. In other words, how we practice living food sustainably, or 'food-stainably.'
Sustainability matters because through the protection and careful use of our natural resources, our lives are improved and made easier - as well as the lives of future generations.
A food system describes the activities and relationships involved right from the start of our food production, to the end with the consumption of food and eventual disposal of any waste.
