Solving the climate crisis is complex; it’s intersectional, interdisciplinary, and downright overwhelming. Let’s talk about it.

This book circle focuses on the bestselling anthology All We Can Save edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Wilkinson. The anthology centres voices that are often unheard in the climate movement and blends writings from a diverse selection of essayists with art and poetry.

This initiative aims to create a space for youth to engage in a deeper dialogue about the climate crisis while building community around climate action and solutions. Addressing these issues is hard work and we can all benefit from support along the way.

About the book circle:

All We Can Save is an anthology made up of ten sections. The book circle will consists of ten sessions – one per section. Participants will read the section of the anthology prior to the circle session. The circle will be focused on facilitated discussions related to the reading and theme of the section.

About Bullock Lake Farm (From the Bullock Lake Website):

We grow 2.5 acres of vegetables, flowers, berries, and herbs in the sunniest fields of our 24-acre farm located on Salt Spring Island, BC. The remaining acreage is split between forest, historic orchard, marshland, and rolling pastures.

Our CSA is the heart of our farm, and most of the produce we grow goes to our member families.

Bullock is one of Salt Spring’s oldest and most beautiful farms, and loves to share the farm through CSA programs, workshops, and events.
