Ever since the Indigenous healing garden, the Michener Gitigan, was planted in 2021, it has been a space to learn, reflect and honour Shkagamik-Kwe (Mother Earth). With that, we are excited to learn about some of Mother Earth’s most misunderstood and undervalued creations … “weeds” … used in food and medicine in indigenous traditions and beyond.
Join us to learn from Carolynne Crawley, a Mi’kmaw environmental justice advocate and an educator from Miinikaan, about the many plants in the Michener Gitigan.
Date: Friday, September 9th
Time: 10 – 11 am
Place: Michener Gitigan, at the corner of Elm St. and McCaul St.
No need to RSVP, though please check in for registration at the site.
Big thanks to the Indigenous Health Program, the Michener Gitigan Committee (we Green Team folks are on that), and Miinikaan Innovation and Design for bringing us this incredible teaching. Can’t wait!!!
In indigenous communities, weeds can be used as food and medicine. Thank you 🌍😊
