We respectfully acknowledge that Cartwheel Farm rests upon the ʔamakʔis Yaqan nuʔkiy – the traditional and unceded territory of the Yaqan nuʔkiy people (Lower Kootenay Band).

We seek to express that gratitude by farming with reverence for our neighbours, those who came before us, and those who will follow.
