Journeys with Heart Tour Directory – 2019 (currently selling)

Starting in 2019 – JWH will donate $5.00 for every traveller booked on our tours to Sole Food Farms:

Street Farm is the inspirational account of residents in the notorious Low Track in Vancouver, British Columbia―one of the worst urban slums in North America―who joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighborhood. It is a story of recovery, of land and food, of people, and of the power of farming and nourishing others as a way to heal our world and ourselves.
