Established in 1996 by Joseph Gonyeau and Wendy Greer. The concept was simple. First, produce 100% botanical, long lasting olive oil soaps. Second, create a 100% natural healing and moisturizing line of skin care products not found anywhere else in the world. Third, grow as many herbs as possible to keep the products local and affordable. The concept has not changed. We manufacture our olive oil based skin care in small batches using the finest unrefined ingredients. We grow own herbs and flowers and infuse them into olive oil. This allows the healing quality of the plants to be slowly extracted. The benefits to your skin can be felt after a few weeks. Some of the ingredients you won't find in our products are: Parabens, alcohol, SLS, Dyes, or any other manmade chemicals that have been proven to be harmful to the human body and the environment. These guidelines have helped us create a truly unique line of skin care for the whole family.

At Kersley Christmas Trees, we began with natural growth and some of our trees continue to grow via stump culture. This means that when a tree is harvested, the bottom whorls are left standing on the site and one branch becomes the leader of a new Christmas tree. Our business is located in the Caribou-Chilcotin region; on 160 acres we grow trees native to this area. We have boughs, wreaths and swags available, all derived from our forest showing a value added approach to floral greenery. Mail order trees are available; order in November for Canadian delivery in December.
The primary goal of the society is to promote total well-being for aboriginal people in all human dimensions: Physical, Spiritual, Mental and Emotional. To achieve this goal, our organization provides many services and programs.
