Located along the Cowichan River in Quamichan, Intertribal Trades provides workshops, medicines and in-home, private consultations. As a young girl, Della Rice Sylvester learned from her grandmothers Ellen Johnny and Sylvestra Modeste. Della's innate knowledge of local plants and their properties allows her to offer homemade, all natural and wild crafted salves, oils, teas and herbal combinations as food supplements. Ellen Rice White (Kwulasulwut) has endowed Della with spiritual and cultural guidance around the use and energy of the medicines. She has studied under Nancy Turner and worked hands on with Lorene Benoit, of the Tree of Light Institute, on plant identification, applications, assessment and preparations.
