Community Use

The Red Hill Valley is a common ecological interest for many surrounding communities, wild life, ecology, and organizations. The Joint Stewardship Board has utilized an old Indigenous Knowledge concept used to maintain a balance within various systems of life, called Seven Generation thinking. This concept has allowed Indigenous Peoples all over the world to continue their existence simply by considering the generations that are yet to come on to this earth. When visiting the Red Hill Valley, the Joint Stewardship Board encourages this thinking for all visitors.

Early Settlers and Indigenous peoples used agriculture as a means of sustainability for many generations. However, over time the farming practice has moved away from its traditional uses and has become more compromising to the land with the addition of pesticides and genetically modified seeds. In urban areas, community gardens are becoming more and more popular with the increasing prices at the super markets. Many families are turning to inexpensive and in season produce.
