Working with the Squamish Nation Education Dept. and the Squamish River Watershed Society, Leigh’s goal is to establish an experimental and educational garden on the side of the estuary owned and managed by the Squamish Nation as a learning centre and eventually to sustain a certain level of harvesting there.
