The Aquifer Project was a multi-disciplinary artistic exploration on the value and impact of our water systems underground. This project was the first in a series of nature-inspired arts programming in partnership with the Town of Gibsons, followed by The Woodlands Project in 2015 and The Foreshore Project in 2016. Led by a team of professional artists, and driven by a group of emerging artists between the ages of 8 and 18, the final show included multi-media installations, semi-permanent sculptures, film/soundscapes, story telling and poetry.

The Town of Gibsons pioneered a program called Natural Asset Management, wherein they consider the towns natural infrastructure as a financial asset. As part of this project, Deer Crossing The Art Farm was hired to dialogue with and communicate to the public, the values that various natural assets provide our community. The Foreshore Project, The Woodlands Project, and The Aquifer Project were part of this work.
