June Monthly Potluck & Meeting – Thursday June 20, 2013

This month’s potluck and meeting features a presentation on the Allan Sapp Gallery Healing Garden by Kjelti Anderson.

As is our custom,doors will open at 6 pm and we’ll share a potluck meal starting around 6:30.  We’ll clean up and Kjelti will begin her presentation at 7:30.

The Healing Garden is a native medicinal plant garden located in downtown North Battleford and was designed using permaculture principles to capture and store water,build soil,increase biodiversity,and provide habitat for insects and wildlife. It is a space for community healing,artistic creation,and ecological and cultural understanding.

In Saskatchewan,there is a very important First Nations history of using plants for healing and health. The Healing Garden gives us an opportunity to understand and honour this tradition as we learn about and deepen our connection to the land.

Kjelti Anderson cultivates a passionate relationship with the Earth and creatively resists the resignation that humanity’s fate is ultimately one of dominance and depletion. She sees the potential that exists for truly sustainable human habitat within healthy ecosystems and views her work with the Allen Sapp Gallery Healing Garden,The Ness Creek Forest Garden,and The Boreal Forest Learning Center as a valuable part of exploring what that will look like.

Please join us for this beautiful and inspiring presentation  Everyone welcome.
