We first met the owners of Great Wall Tea, New Westminster, a few months ago and we were excited to see them since they are from Salt Spring also. We greatly appreciated the wonderful teaching of Sue Newman, giving students help and belief in themselves.
Ms. Virginia Newman was the director of classes for Camosun College on Salt Spring a number of years ago. She helped me to get permission and create the First Native Awareness classes on Salt Spring Island. We had the support of my faculty advisor Mr. Gabe Bartleman and Mr. David Elliot, First Nations elders and support from many others.
We believe that it is important for the literary arts to give support and honor to small businesses. We enjoyed participating in this World Poetry Special event for Great Wall Tea.
From all this the World Poetry New Westminster Tribute to Tea was born!
The Tribute to Tea afternoon was hosted by Ariadne Sawyer and Heidi Mueller. Click here to read a selection of the poems read at the event.
