About HCC

Build relationship to this land, and learn about Indigenous plants, foods, and medicines with Indigenous herbalist Lori Snyder and art historian and writer Laura Cisneros.

At this time, when we have been called to live differently and our hearts are deeply touched by the lives affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, In Harmony With Nature we stay committed to our intention on building a creative bridge between our community and nature. 

We are inviting you to take those inward ideas, dreams, energy… and bring them outward into this new reality.  

And this Spring Season, we trust we will keep connected through different online platforms. Visit our blog and watch our videos and photos on some of the plants we can find or grow in our gardens this time of the year. Mark your calendars with the events we are programming.

This month we are inviting you all to join us for an Eco-Art Making Workshop with Dionne Paul. Sunday May 24th, at 1030 am -1200 pm in Zoom.

Dionne Paul is an artist and medicine woman from the Sechelt Nation. Dionne is also Traditional Knowledge Keeper and a Yoga Instructor.

Coming up in June:

Meet with Lori A & Laura C via Zoom, Sunday June 14th, 1030 am-12 pm.  Let’s continue our journey together and expand our relations in nature.  

 

Meet Sandra Semchuk via Zoom, Saturday June 20th, 1030 am-12 pm. Elder and artist, Sandra Semchuk is a Governor General Award recipient in Visual and Media Arts. She is a storyteller who uses the familial, autobiography and dialogue as the basis for recognition and identity across generations, cultures and species. She is currently telling stories and doing collaborative portraits in dialogue with the sentience of trees.

We will offer space for an interactive workshop in which the artist and, in collaboration with the community, co-create a unique reference book of flora and fauna knowledge for future generations. Copies of the art will be used to build create a botanical art book.  These workshops are inclusive of all ages and cultural background.
