On May 28th Oak and Orca School will be hosting their 15th Annual Bioregional Fair. More than just an open-house or a fundraiser, this fair is an opportunity for Oak and Orca to share their Bioregional philosophy with the community at large.

Bioregionalism is the practice of intimately exploring, knowing and caring for the natural and human communities within a region defined by nature, our bioregion. As “bioregion” literally means territory of life, the goal is to define and connect with a place based on its life-forms. This is achieved by appreciating the ecology, history, culture, and cycles of the seasons where we live.

Oak and Orca School provides a model of bioregionalism within the modern world. Named after a tree and animal in its bioregion, the school strives to connect students with the place they live. As community is so important in this process, the Bioregional Fair is an opportunity for people to gather and have fun whether they are connected with the school or not. Children’s activities, Penny arcade and craft table, along with a bake sale, bioregional displays and crafts, and a silent auction featuring local or eco-friendly items will be available in a friendly and chemical free environment.

Oak and Orca Bioregional School is a BC Certified Independent School operating a pre-primary program, a K-12 brick and mortar school, and a K-12 DL program called Hands-On Home-Learning.
