Reimagining ‘weeds’ as medicines and foods: a workshop at Michener Gitigan (garden) shares deep insights into how Two-Eyed Seeing can help us achieve A Healthier World.

As kids we were taught to not call names. Names can hurt. And they shape how we see the world—for better or worse.

Weeds. Invasives. Poison Ivy. Stinging Nettle. These names place a negative lens on plants. In Indigenous thought, plants are our older siblings. They evolved on earth before us and have been thriving for millennia without us. Because of this, they have a lot to teach us.
