Our three different walking tours along Black Creek and one online workshop will weave together community history, visits to community gardens, thousands of years of Indigenous history in the area, music and dance to celebrate the aliveness of the Creek and its ravine.

Food, Land & Water: a food-themed walk exploring connections between growing food, land, water and our own health. We’ll visit community gardens and Black Creek Community Farm, and speak to leaders about their food-growing and developing food sovereignty with culturally appropriate foods for all. The tour will end at the site of the 15th century Wendat longhouse village beside Black Creek where their large fields grew the “Three Sisters” of corn, beans and squash to support their community, asking what can we learn about supporting our community’s food needs today. 2-5 PM
