About Senden

Senden Sustainable Agriculture Resource Centre (Senden) is a busy 3-acre community centre with a historic farmhouse, demonstration gardens, greenhouse and bee keeping. Senden applies a holistic approach to youth development rooted in the lands and communities of the Upper Skeena. By supporting youth to gain connection to self, others and the land, Senden programs ensure that youth become participating members of their communities. It is a space for learning, sharing, caring and growing.

Senden is located in the heart of the Hazeltons within the Gitxsan territories of Northwest British Columbia. Senden, owned and operated by the Upper Skeena Development Centre hosts community workshops and administers youth programs. Nestled at the base of 8,000 foot Stekyoden, Hazelton's massive landmark mountain, a 52-year-old farmhouse sits on three peaceful acres which was once a thriving dairy farm. The centre is ideally located on the main road between New Hazelton and Hazelton. It is within walking distance to the local secondary school and college, on the main bus route, and on the community trail system that is used daily by many community members.

We are bringing together service providers, gatherers, agriculture producers, traditional knowledge holders, elders, and youth and their families to connect with the common goal of nurturing personal development.  Our work is guided by an advisory group who reflect the diversity of our communities.

Senden programs are place-based and rooted in the lands and communities of the Gitxsan territories.
