Thank you to the Musagetes community for inviting Kapwa Collective to facilitate a series of Kapwa Playshops this weekend in Guelph. We will create handmade seedballs containing wildflowers, and plantable paper out of recycled materials and seeds.
We will invite the community to plant these offerings in the Mashkiki Gitigaan (medicine garden in Anishnaabemowin) - "a medicine and pollinator garden that Musagetes staff, Elwood Jimmy and Chelsea Brant have been building and growing with the support of many community members through their donation of time, seeds, and plants.
The Mashkiki Gitigaan is the foundation for a variety of summer workshops/talks/walks/knowledge gatherings/community circles throughout the city, "centering art, ecology sustainability, relationship-building, collaborative learning, restorative and trauma-informed practices, and Indigenous & land-based teachings."
