DAYS OF LEARNING EVENTS

2020 Days of Learning

Due to COVID-19 learning opportunities in large groups, in person, are not possible. However, we will be reaching out to community to find out what their learning needs are. So far, we have many new Indigenous gardeners, who are hoping for support in knowing how to care for the plants that are now calling these gardeners yards their home. Our priority is to centre: local Indigenous knowledge carriers; local Indigenous skilled gardeners; and Indigenous relatives with relevant knowledge, skills, and teachings to share. We'll also be welcoming community partners to support the work of learning, sharing, and facilitating these learning opportunities through the means determined to be the best way to share knowledge with the network. We're open to creative ways of sharing including, videos, live streams, audio, art, and more.
