Dillon Consulting Food Forest Volunteer Day!

The staff at Dillon consulting in Oakville will be helping HEN with some weeding and garden maintenance at our Food Forest in Kingsford Gardens!

We will be weeding and cleaning up the Oakville Food ForestFood forests are designed to mimic the ecosystem found in real forests, but with a focus on edible species and on encouraging greater biodiversity. Once established, food forests become self-sustaining living ecosystems, requiring minimal human intervention. We have already planted some fruit and berry trees and shrubs, and were able to harvest sour cherries and red currants to donate to the Sowing Hope program at Kerr Street Mission this summer.

Do you have a team who is interested in volunteering with the Food Forest for a couple hours? Fill out this form!

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.  

The HEN Office resides on Treaty 22, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. For more information on Treaty 22 go to: http://mncfn.ca/treaty2223/
