Wisahkotewinowak is our local food sovereignty project

Wisahkotewinowak Gardens grow sustainable, culturally relevant food for the urban Indigenous population of the Waterloo-Wellington Region, as well as, host ceremonies, workshops, plant walks and summer camps to grow and strengthen the community.  We practice traditional agriculture methods at all our garden locations, including traditional planting and harvesting ceremonies. 



Produce Garden

At our produce garden we grow a variety of vegetables for the local Indigenous Community, including tomatoes, peas, carrots, and the Three Sisters/Sustainers (Corn, Beans, Squash).
