So grateful to April for leading us on a walk through the Indigenous Agriculture Garden at the Evergreen Brick Works on Saturday!
As an outdoor educator, she gave us an in-depth nature walk experience that involved her perspectives as a lead of the gardening program and as a member of Wendat nation.
We learned about plants that are native to the area, including jewelweed that shimmers in water, goldenrod which can be made into a tea to combat ragweed allergies, and tobacco that has been planted from 1,000-year-old seeds!
Thank you to TD FEF for making this event possible.
We look forward to our next “Newcomer Urban Nature Access Pass” events in September and October!
