Nick Jones and his family moved into the forests of Mt. Tuam (Tsu-ween) on Salt Spring Island (Chu’an, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Hul’qumi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples) to create a homestead and farm. This ongoing collaboration invites a space of conservation, teaching, and living in balance with the Earth.

Delvin Solkinson lives on Pender Island and has spent much of the last 20 years travelling the planet to learn from permaculture pioneers over the course of three Diplomas, a Masters and Doctorate in Permaculture Education including 13 teacher trainings and 13 advanced courses. Delvin is a happy community gardener and nature lover.
