Peninsula Parks & Play Spaces (2007)


PENINSULA PARKS AND PLAY SPACES PROJECT

“Rediscovering places to play on the Saanich peninsula”

The Peninsula Parks and Play Spaces Project is an initiative to increase awareness and use of parks and play spaces as local resources that can help foster the healthy development of young children (0-6 years) and their families. The project has two phases—community involvement processes that will result in development of an informational map of the parks and play spaces on the Saanich Peninsula and “Play Days in the Parks” scheduled for spring 2007.

Coastal Stewardship Community Mapping

Working with the Coastal and Oceans Resource Analysis Laboratory (CORAL), and SeaChange Marine Conservation Society, the Community Mapping Collaboratory is conducting research into how community mapping can support coastal stewardship initiatives.

The geographic location of the study is Saanich Inlet and Peninsula. The thematic focus is sense of place, ecological awareness, bioregional understanding, and lifestyle choices.

Fernwood Fruit Tree Project (2007)

Starting in the summer of 2007, Fernwood Fruit Tree Project participants will harvest fruit and berries from trees and bushes in our community that would otherwise go to waste. The food will be distributed equally amongst home owners, volunteers, food banks and community organisations.

This project is part of the Fernwood NRG Harvest Project, a project that promotes local food sustainability. We will be putting on canning, preserving and drying workshops in the fall of 2007 so community members can enjoy local food all year round.
