Beyond Land Acknowledgements:
Join farmers Denise Atkinson from Thunder Bay, traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg Peoples in Northwestern Ontario and Paul Wartman from Nova Scotia (Mi’kma’ki) for a creative exercise that guides participants through a 4-step planning tool to include reconciliatory justice into our everyday actions.
Informed by their experiences, participants will reflect on how they can take meaningful action. You will leave with resources to continue learning, next steps to integrate better relations into your lives and farming careers, and inspiration from the group. Plus, you’ll be practicing a sweet little planning tool that you can apply to any situation. Everyone welcome, bring a pen/pencil, and paper. A recording of this webinar will be available.
Speakers: Denise Atkinson, Aweya Farm & Tea Horse and Paul Wartman, Flororen Farm
