Land-based Education: Ermineskin Permaculture Project

Presenters: Derek Bruno & Marsha Shack

Permaculture is derived from Nehiyawatisiwin and the traditional principles of gathering food, medicine and shelter from the land. The presentation will explore how permaculture serves as a bridge that reconnects people to their land by sharing lessons and best practices from the Ermineskin Permaculture Project, an edible food forest planted this past summer. We will discuss ideas that teachers and staff can use from K-12 to blend and connect Nehiyawatisiwin practices with science.
