Resurfacing History is an Indigenous-led program that is run out of the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House and supported by the Alder Eco-Arts Hub. The program develops a community process for understanding of the land around us, and resurfacing Indigenous land-based teachings and practices. The Alder provides space for harvesting and processing of native plants and medicine, and provides a space for workshops to take place.
The values of Resurfacing History are:
- Taking a community engagement approach to cultural harvesting for local Indigenous families
- Mapping the terrain and identifying harvesting corridors in the city
- Transferring traditional knowledge
- Making things from our harvest to use in our homes
- Learning and sharing responsible harvesting/ethical wildcrafting techniques.
