What to Expect
Get ready to unwind as you arrive to Sophie’s own Garden of Eden and welcoming smile. Follow the smell of the crackling fire and settle in around the circle for a relaxing evening. Get to know Sophie and chat about your own experience in the garden while sipping on iced tea.
Tour through Rising Roots Farm, beginning in the rows of vegetables. Engage all of your senses as you deepen your connection to our larger food ecosystem. Hear from Sophie about planning your planting and what works well together. Pick vegetables along the way to be enjoyed later on.
After your tour, you’ll meet around the fire circle to talk more about the social values Rising Roots, as well as agroecology in general, bases itself on - reciprocity, community, and social justice - all while looking at its foundation in Indigenous knowledge and teachings through Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Honourable Harvest Protocols.
With the protocols in mind, you’ll head to the flower garden to explore their implementation, and hand-pick your own bouquet to take home.
End the evening with a deeper look into the hope that agroecology, as well as well as Indigenous knowledge and teachings can play - all while sharing food from the farm together, around the campfire.
