Operating a community garden to share Indigenous knowledge and grow, harvest, and distribute traditional plant foods and medicines in community.
Mno Wiisini Gitigaanan (MWG) is a rural, grassroots, mixed-race, 2-spirit (Queer and Trans Indigenous) led sustenance sovereignty initiative located in shared Metis, Anishinaabek, and Rotinosaunee homelands near the shores of Waaseyaagami-wiikwed (Georgian Bay) in Dish with One Spoon Treaty territory. We operate as a community garden space for gathering to share Indigenous knowledge and to grow, harvest, and distribute traditional plant foods and medicines in community.
I’m passionate about this project because it provides much needed space in a rural context for building community among Indigenous, 2SLGBTQ folks, and youth. MWG is an empowering space for me to gather with others and work towards sustenance sovereignty while striving to live responsibly in these territories.
I became involved in this project because of my personal ties to Indigenous culture and my interest with the history of this land. I loved the idea of a project that works to reclaim food sovereignty through hands-on education as well as general awareness raising. I think it is initiatives like this that make reconciliation possible.
