    Description

    We are excited to announce the continuation of our Garden and Trail Project in Manitoba. Consider this an open invitation to join us while we tend to gardens, swim in the Wanipigow river and enjoy the land with great company.

    Our goals for this summer are to work with our community partners to support gardening on three large plots and over a dozen raised beds for community elders. The gardens will be the location for educational workshops on starting a garden, pickling and preserving, fall planting and cooking in season. We also plan to work with local youth and wilderness experts to build trails which showcase places of particular beauty, ecological and cultural significance.
    The traditional lands are located in the Heart of the Boreal, the worlds largest remaining intact Boreal forest. This makes it all the more important for our planet that development in this community puts the health of community members and the ecosystem first. Our gardens and trails will help to demonstrate that opportunities can be created without damaging this global ecological treasure.
