Stewarding a garden space for gathering to share Indigenous knowledges and growing traditional plant foods and medicines in community.
Sacred Seeds Collective is a rural, grassroots, mixed-race Two Spirit (Queer & Trans Indigenous) led sustenance sovereignty initiative located on shared traditional Métis, Anishinaabek, and Rotinosaunee (longhouse) homelands near the shores of Waaseyaagami-wiikwed (Georgian Bay), in Dish with One Spoon Treaty territory. We steward a garden space in Simcoe County for gathering to share Indigenous knowledges alongside growing traditional plant foods and medicines to distribute in community.
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.
SSC carves out critical space for Two-Spirit community members in their region, and beyond. They organize in ways that are accessible, responsive, and account for the diverse experiences of Indigenous community members all while centering plant and medicine relations.
