The W.C. Nielson Heritage Program
An inclusive and compassionate information preservation plan.

Elder Glade Publishing is happy to announce the W.C. Nielson Heritage Program, a collection of classes, workshops, and support materials dedicated to the preservation of knowledge, skills, history, tradition, and legacy.

The W.C. Nielson Heritage Program is designed to help capture family and community information, recipes, photos, short works of poetry or fiction, and traditions.

What is tradition?

A tradition, by the W.C. Nielson Heritage Program standard, includes any practices specific to a family, culture, belief system, and/or community. The most important foundation of a tradition is that it both sustains and evolves to provide continuous support as needed. It is also a fundamental truth that certain traditions retire when they are no longer sustainable or supportive.

Traditions can be newly minted or long-running generational practices.

The vibrant kaleidoscope of our world’s multitude of traditions are forever interacting and evolving. Unfortunately, sometimes nuances are lost in the shuffle of stressful living, life circumstances, or simply forgotten to time or memory.

We wish to capture those memories, share those stories, catalogue those recipes and preserve those traditions for reference and posterity. As a society, we can always evolve our ideas, traditions and practices. Having a library of reference material only helps inform the next generations of what has been done and allows them to continue or improve upon those knowledge bases to enrich their own futures.
We believe having the information available allows others to decide if they would like to store and preserve, practice and continue, or even archive and move on into a new set of traditions or ways.

We are honored to facilitate the sharing of these processes, and to help preserve the human story.

Objective:

The goal of the W.C. Nielson Heritage program is to promote the preservation of ideas, information, and memories while also sharing out those key learnings and building community.
