"Ravens for Robert"
Raven banners are now available at Camas as a fundraiser for Camas volunteer Robert Garfat's
to raise funds for his lung treatments.
Sooke artist, Gillian Gravenor, has created the banners which have been popular sellers at Camas in the past, and all proceeds are donated to Robert's campaign.
"Four years ago, grassroots members of the Wet'suwet'en people of northern BC learned that oil and gas pipeline projects are planned to cross their territory without their permission. The indigenous leaders of Unis'tot'en Camp began turning away oil and gas company workers over a year ago. The land defenders set up a "soft blockade" to keep out the corporations, and started building a camp and permanent homes in the pipeline route."
Join the Fall Caravan! Help deliver preserves and donations to Unis'tot'en Camp and bring in the harvest from the permaculture garden. Call or email us for info on the camp, ride-share teams, and what to expect this fall and winter. Volunteers are needed year-round.
