Description

Join us for a day of Deep Nature Connection with Serena Turner from Thriving Roots Wilderness School! Come out to UVic's community gardens to connect and explore the physical world around us. We will get out of our busy heads and into our bodies and senses.

Through various activities and exploration we will:
- Develop our intuitive and instinctual ways of connecting with the natural world,
-Learn about edible and medicinal properties of common plants,
-Dive into bird ID and bird language,
-Explore the ecological wildlife web surrounding the garden, and
-Gain deeper awareness and connection to the Earth, ourselves and each other.

She completed the Art of Mentoring program at the Wilderness Awareness School in Washington in July 2017. Serena has been engaged in full time plant medicine studies that brought her to the Amazonian jungle. She later ventured to Ireland to study ancient ways of healing in her culture.

ABOUT THE CAMPUS COMMUNITY GARDEN

The Campus Community Garden is a collaborative project between UVic students, faculty and staff to promote local and organic food production, education and community building. Our aim is to provide an accessible space where members and volunteers can learn, teach and foster sustainable food production practices within the campus and larger community. We host weekly work parties at our 90-plot garden where volunteers can participate in growing food for the UVSS Food Bank. Drop by the garden anytime and find out more information on our website. Stay updated through our weekly newsletter or facebook page.

LOCATION
We are located at 2100 McKenzie Ave, outside of Ring Road and north of the athletics fields. There is a paved pathway from Gabriola rd that leads to the garden and parking/car access on McCoy Rd. We are in the process of working to make our garden more physically accessible. Google Map: http://bit.ly/1LmRrns.

The Campus Community Garden sits upon the territories of the Lekwungen and WSANEC peoples. We are grateful to cultivate and grow food on this land.
