Indigenous Gardening at the Ashbridge Estate

In 2017, the Ojibiikaan Indigenous Cultural Network established a traditional food garden at Toronto’s Ashbridge Estate in collaboration with Building Roots and the Ontario Heritage Trust. The project engaged Indigenous youth and adult volunteers in preparing the land, planting seeds and tending the plants using traditional agricultural techniques – including re-learning planting songs and ceremonies from First Nations farmers and Tradition Keepers.

We’re back at Ashbridge this summer, and we invite you to join the Ojiibikens EarlyON Program for monthly kid-friendly earth-working activities and planting from seed to harvest!
