Where you'll be
Our facility is located in a gorgeous area just a little ways from a traditional Sinixt village site. You can hear Airy Creek from this beautiful property. We may stay onsite to collect our plants or head off-road up decommissioned logging roads where we can access different micro climates and more plant variety. (If winter weather makes it challenging to make it out to our facility we will meet in a public forested area instead.)
