PR – Poetry Slam – The Language of Trees
April 23 @ 1:00 pm
This year’s Poetry Slam theme, the Language of Trees, is deeply connected and intertwined with qathet’s community history. Inhabited by Coast Salish peoples since time immemorial, the natural resources of this area, like cedar, sustained and provided much for humans to thrive. In the 19th century, it is also what attracted settlers. The forestry industry of qathet directly contributed to its development. With changing values towards this industry, sustainability and concern of old growth trees is now a prominent issue globally. What do the trees have to say about this?
