Growing safe and inclusive spaces to share

LDSB students will not only have the opportunity to fully participate in building and planting the new garden but there will be ongoing educational opportunities for LDSB students around food sovereignty, medicines and Indigenous languages at both the KILN community garden and LDSB school gardens throughout the district.

Guided by our ancestors’ love and wisdom, KILN is an organization that connects the Urban Indigenous communities on this territory by growing safe and inclusive spaces to share and revitalize our languages and worldview, for generations to come. Growing and creating land-based programs and spaces where our youth feel welcomed and want to engage is a key priority in this important work. Through engaging LDSB youth with this exciting project, we hope to facilitate increased connections to the land and community.
