As we become accustomed to covering our hands and face in our daily interactions with the outside world, safely nurturing our sense of touch through interaction with natural elements like soil and seeds can be moreimportant than ever.
This planting workshop will provide you with the basic knowledge you need to (re)connect with nature and start your own at-home food garden. A sunny window, a balcony, a front porch, a small backyard: no matter how big or how small your outdoor space, you can use it to grow your own food!
What you’ll need: seeds; soil; vermicompost; and recycled containers (e.g., strawberry or yoghurt containers).
mind.heart.mouth is a gardening collective founded by our workshop facilitator, Andrea Tremblay, with the goal of using garden-based pedagogy as well as consumer experience theories to create workshops and spaces designed to increase awareness and greater connections with our natural environments. The project is funded by the Concordia Food Coalition, the Concordia Council on Student Life, and the Sustainability Action Fund.
