Traditional Food Garden at Ashbridge’s Estate


 FoodTraditional Food

In 2017, we established a traditional food garden at Ashbridge Estate in collaboration with Building Roots and 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. Feel free to stop by and explore the gardens!
