TD Friends of the Environment funds Traditional Medicine Garden

10/15/2015

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawą:ke (MCK) Tsi Niionkwarihņ:ten Tsitewahįhara′n Center and the Kahnawą:ke Environment Protection Office are pleased to announce an innovative new project to develop a Traditional Medicine Garden being funded by the TD Friends of the Environment.

This collaborative effort will serve both departments’ mutually beneficial needs by sharing the space. Students will learn to identify traditional medicines and other activities pertaining to language and culture, while the Environment Protection Office will be able to hold various initiatives, such as their popular Community Composting Workshops.

“The possibilities are almost endless on ways that we can both share and benefit from this garden,” said Language and Culture Training Program General Manager Chera Warisó:se Lahache. “We’re pleased that we’ve found a willing partner to allow us to move forward with this excellent project that will have a great benefit for not only our program, but for the entire community.”

The Garden will be located in the back yard of the Training Center.

TD Friends of the Environment Foundation is a national charity that funds environmental projects across Canada. The Foundation concentrates its efforts on projects that promote environmental education; ‘greening’ and environmental biodiversity; and energy conservation.
