Garden Walk, Seed Saving, and Seed Rematriation
October 20 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm EDT
Join us at Collard City Growers during our regular garden hours for a garden walk and seed saving activity with Lucille Burr Grignon. We’ll finish the afternoon at People’s Health Sanctuary in NATURE Lab’s second floor.
Lucille Burr Grignon is an enrolled member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Nation and a direct descendant of the Menominee Nation. Muh-he-con-ne-ok being of the People of the Waters that are never still and Menominee being of the Ancient movers. She is a passionate Indigenous homesteader, educator, and advocate for her community and the world around her. Her family owns an Indigenous Homestead called Ancient Roots in Bowler, Wisconsin. They research traditional gardening practices from their ancestors dating back to ages ago to the present day. They use a combination of methods to learn, preserve, grow, seed save, reconnect, and share. They are working to reconnect to their cultural inheritance through the land, plants, medicines, and wildlife. Lucy recognizes her connections to her Indigenous roots come in many forms, from their language journey to the stories of their elders, their people, and their healing.
This event is one in a series related to the establishment and growth of a Medicine Garden in the NATURE Lab yard, which is part of the Sanctuary’s growing Eco-Art Trail, supported by an N.E.A. Our Town Grant in collaboration with the Stockbridge-Munsee Community Band of Mohican Indians.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
