Woodwynn Farms

The Peace Sanctuary Sculpture Park will be located on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada at Woodwynn Farms on the Saanich Peninsula (Brentwood Bay), near Victoria.

Woodwynn Farms is a therapeutic community for homefulness. The vision of Woodynn is as follows: “To enfold homeless people back into community by giving them the support and the tools needed to reclaim their self-worth.”

Woodwynn Farm was the location of the original field art that Deryk did (with a little help from his friends – actually a LOT of help from his friends) in 2000.


Some other projects include:

A large earthen work ground sculpture (created in 2002) located near Hudson’s Hope, BC, about 75 miles from Fort St John. (at the very top of this map)

Peace Sanctuary

This is an image of the Hudson Hope earthenwork peace sanctuary at a gravel pit in Northeastern British Columbia. This work is 1000 ft in diameter and was created by Deryk Houston in 2002. It was constructed using a 42 ton Cat Skinner (bulldozer). Hundreds of tons of material were moved to form a primitive simple mother and child image.
