WORKSHOP TITLE : In My Longhouse Basket
DESCRIPTION : Mohawk Seedkeeper Terrylynn Brant believes that the health of the land, the water, the people and the earth, depends on the agricultural system we have. She will share her work at Mohawk Seedkeeper Gardens on Six Nations. Her work uses indigenous knowledge to create local food security in light of climate change, big corporate farming and the current attacks on farmland in Ontario’s Greenbelt. Será:sera will encourage participants to look at their own personal food security as the first step towards their own personal health.
