Plant Medicine Walk with Métis Traditional Knowledge Holder

Organizer: No.9 Gardens

Date: August 21, 2022, 10am - 12 pm

Facilitator: Candance Lloyd, Nookom Learning

Summary: Candace Lloyd, OCT, Métis Traditional Knowledge Holder, and Medicine Woman will instruct participants on how to create a tea, salt, or sugar scrub, and an infusion of oil from ingredients found on the land.

This medicine-making workshop focuses on creating medicines from the abundance that Mother Earth provides for all. This workshop will also be an opportunity to learn about honourable harvest and use only what we need. Traditional Knowledge of medicines will be shared along with the stories of how medicine was introduced to the People, reflections on our own journeys seeking natural medicine.

Additional note: Outdoor education locations, conservation areas, local woodland lots, gardens are required along with the availability of tables, chairs, and shelter according to climate.

Workshops will run if a minimum of 6 participants register and will have a maximum of 20 participants. Come early to drink refreshments and our fresh garden produce can be purchased upon request. Please bring a reusable water bottle (if you have one), a hat, and comfortable footwear for the gardens. You are welcome to hike the Hawkridge Nature Conservancy Trail as well. Please bring a mask if required for government regulations.

About No.9 Gardens: Your registration directly supports our programs and helps us fulfill our mission of empowering youth and the general public to lead a revolution in building resilient communities. No.9 Gardens is focused on educating people about the importance of a strong, local, resilient food system. We work with volunteers to grow fresh nutritious produce for those most in need.

No.9 Gardens is situated on many traditional territories including Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-o-show-nee), Anishinaabe (Ah-nish-in-ah-bay), Mississauga, Algonquin, and the Wendake-Nionwentsïo nations. We are grateful to be able to offer the public these lands to live, learn, and play on.

40 acres of quintessential Ontario wilderness in eastern Ontario known as the Frontenac Arch Natural Area: this is the canvas on which we are creating Canada’s first centre for promoting sustainability and indigenous dialogue. No.9 Gardens is located alongside the Hawkridge Trail, 200 acres of protected UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and the spectacular natural beauty of Eastern Ontario.

How do we do this? By providing enjoyable, lived experiences outdoors in the natural environment that encourages creativity, greater respect and reciprocity with the land, and a more sustainable lifestyle. Check out No.9’s website for more information on our programs:
