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.
