Halton clarified her feelings. “The ability to plant a garden was a privilege in itself. Keeping my mind busy but remaining present. It was less an activity for food security, but more a mental health break and focus on something life-giving.”
I express my gratitude for the opportunity to live and work on Treaty 6 territory - the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux.
I hope this work honours the ancestors of this land and enriches the lives of our descendants.
