LifeCycles cultivates community health from the ground up by connecting people, the food they eat and the land it comes from. We support people in gaining the knowledge, skills and resources they need to access or grow their own food in a way that fosters biodiversity and enhances our urban environment.

Thank-You!

Thanks to everyone who applied for our Summer Student positions!


We had such a difficult decisions to make due to the high volume of qualified candidates. We have now hired for the positions, and will be making our announcements shortly. 


Thanks again for your interest.  We know applying takes a great effort on your part.  It is wonderful to know there is so much interest in working for LifeCycles.


All the best!

Territory Acknowledgement:

LifeCycles work focuses on health, healing and connecting people to the food they eat and where it comes from. We endeavour to honour the land and its treaties by strengthening our relationship and responsibilities to them. We live and work on unceded Coast Salish Territories*, specifically of the Lekwungen and W_SÁNEC peoples. Many of our practices, including the seeds we plant, the ways we educate and our methods of growing food came to these lands through the ongoing process of dispossession and colonialism. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.

* The term Coast Salish is used to encompass a number of Indigenous peoples, including Esquimalt, Hul’qumi’num, Klahoose, Lekwungen (Songhees), MALAXEt, Musqueam, OStlq’emeylem, Pentlatch, Scia’new (Beecher Bay), Sliammon, Shishalh, Skxwú7mesh-ulh Úxwumixw, Stó:lo, Straits, Tsleil-Waututh, T’Sou-ke, W_SÁNEC (Pauquachin, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum), and Xwemalhkwu.
