The BC/Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors (BCYADWS)  recently had a Fundraiser at VANDU in Vancouver Downtown Eastside

The BC/Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors (BCYADWS) is hosting a “caravan” across BC to:

  • promote the BCYADWS
  • connect with communities in BC,
  • sign up members
  • collect information about the health needs of drug users across the province and
  • to develop action strategies with communities to advocate for these established health needs

We are holding this fundraiser and requesting donations to cover the cost of BC/Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors (BCYADWS) activities

The Schedule
PAST: UBC Farm History
PRESENT: The Vancouver Campus Planning process and the UBC Farm
FUTURE: The Great Farm Trek 2009

AHA MEDIA  helped to celebrate the UBC Farm and its future! :)

“It has been a great year for the farm, in terms of innovative programming, awards, and media attention. However, the future of the 24 hectare farm is still not clear, so it is time to come together to celebrate the Farm’s accomplishments and show our unified support for a bright future for the Farm! This is a celebratory, family-friendly event. We want thousands to join us as we trek from the UBC Student Union Building (SUB) via the Board of Governors meeting and then on to the UBC Farm.”

“We will have Vancouver’s own ever-wacky and danceable Carnival Band, the high-energy percussion ensemble known as Sambata, Papa Thom from the Shepherd’s Pie Tour ’09, Agora String Band, and much more! At the UBC farm there will be music (the soul-quakin’, boot-shakin’ bluegrass boys of the Agora String Band, and the hip hop alt country tom waits-sylin’ Blackberry Wood.) As well there will be food, addresses from James Mackinnon (100-Mile Diet author,) Rex Weyler (Greenpeace founder), special recorded greetings from David Suzuki, and the Mayor of Vancouver, and a ceremonial planting. “
