The medicine garden is located within the community garden at Christie Pitts Park in Toronto. These sacred medicines are planted in memory of Mia Pesim Pedersen (2002-2018), who loved wholesome food and wished to help with nurturing this garden. The four Anishnawbe medicines are: giizhik (white cedar); mshkodewashk (sage); asema (tobacco); and wiingaashk (sweetgrass); with their companion plant, odei’min (strawberry).
