DVD’S NOW AVAILABLE (see below) for “YOUTH & ELDERS : WISDOM FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE” – a journey to learn about the North and South Pender Islands’ fascinating past, inspiring present, and key challenges ahead. This 65-minute film weaves together treasures from the Pender Museum, period photos, and (most of all) curious Pender kids interviewing Pender Elders! We learn about old-time island skills for self-sufficiency and resilience, cooperation and connection. We also see Pender youth (and grown-ups) bringing forward the best of the past… diving into local apple juicing, nut tree planting, nature and energy conservation. They’re helping to re-build the local capacity and spirit that can carry our communities through many worldwide challenges!
