This project is a cornerstone endeavour of The Land Between organization in partnership with Curve Lake First Nation.
The Land Between is a Grassroots and pure non-government National Charity with a mandate to foster bioregionalism.
Bioregionalism is the relationship of residents to the landscape that surrounds them. It is the understanding that our identities, economies, and health are all based on the Land.
Bioregionalism is a sense of place and belonging and the knowledge that we (humans, species, and the land we live on) are all interconnected.
When bioregionalism is fostered the results are pride of place, new relationships across sectors and levels, greater capacity, and sustained stewardship actions. Therefore bioregionalism results in healthy and vibrant communities and the management of resources that will support the next generations.
Therefore, The Land Between focuses on relationships as the basis of our actions: we use a collaborative and community-based model for delivering our strategic plan and our projects, and we honour landowner voices. We employ a Traditional Talking Circle as our way of governance and make decisions by consensus. We ensure diversity and plurality on our Board and we honor the original treaties of the region and of our country by ensuring at least 50% First Nation representation within our organization. And we benefit from these partnership and ways through access to Traditional Knowledge and the diversity of perspectives and experiences that allows for more integrated and meaningful solutions.
