The PEPAKEṈ HÁUTW̱ Native Plants & Garden program offers weekly workshops for the students at the ȽÁU,WELṈEW Tribal School and W̱SÁNEĆ Leadership Secondary.
Students have the opportunity to experience our outdoor classroom located at PEPAKEṈ HÁUTW̱. We teach students about growing, planting, and harvesting native plants like JSÁY (douglas fir), ḰȽO,EL (camas) and DEḴEṈIȽĆ (thimbleberry) as well as growing fruits and vegetables like kale, raspberries, carrots and more!
The design of our workshop schedule emerges from the 13 WSÁNEĆ moons. The end of summer and early fall is dedicated to final harvests and preparing for the winter 2season by covering plants with leaves – an Earth Blanket, so that students can learn about how leaves decompose and the mulch protects and returns nutrients to the soil. In the winter, we create a cozy space for Elders to visit and teach classes.
