About Us

Our Mission

We offer accessible, quality supplies for self-sufficiency, especially those that would otherwise be difficult or inconvenient to source. We offer a continuum of learning options, creating consistently awesome introductory content while tapping into a network of specialists to help people take their skills to higher levels. We forge alliances with grassroots organizations that promote self-sufficiency and sustainability through education.

Our Vision

Our vision is to bring self-sufficiency into the mainstream. We envision a world in which the way things are made is alive in the public's consciousness. We see a greater connection between ourselves, our neighbours, and the products we consume, and from that connection a society of greater understanding, dialogue, and sustainability. We don't imagine that every family will have it's own small farm, but we do imagine that every person will have a friend that is a farmer, and every child will grow up with a basic understanding of where food comes from. Let's get there together!

Accessibility Info

Located on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), & sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, Homestead Junction is ground level. Our front entrance measures 38.5" Wide x 83" High. 

To access the back workshop space, there is an entrance that measures 45" Wide.

We have one gender inclusive bathroom which is not wheelchair or scooter accessible and does not have a railing. The door is 40" Wide x 80" High. Going in 2 feet, there is another entrance point that is only 33" wide.
 
Homestead Junction offers workshops and space that includes the use of essential oils and is therefore not scent-reduced, though we do ask to please not wear perfumes when participating in the space. 
 
At Homestead Junction, we are committed to holding inclusive space that welcomes everyone regardless of race, nationality, gender, religion, ability, and class. This means we are continuously learning how we can better address many intersecting barriers that prevent people from participating in our workshops. If you are interested in a workshop and request ASL interpretation, or if you have any other access needs, feedback, or questions, please contact community@homesteadjunction.ca
