Beardy’s & Okemasis, Ahtahkakoop, and Muskeg Lake Cree Nations
The Muskeg Lake Cree Nation in association with Canadian Feed the children has 2 Garden towers, 1 for the daycare program and one for the school. In January and February 2018, Earth Connections facilitated a 5 day Gardening and Greenhouse course for members of Beardy’s & Okemasis, Ahtahkakoop, and Muskeg Lake Cree Nations, funded through Canadian Feed The Children. Each community received a Cold Frame for community growing. Muskeg Lake Cree Nation went on to establish a 3 acre food forest.

Earth Connections was honoured to be invited by Willow Creek Health Services to facilitate two, one-day gardening workshops to assist with their Community Garden Project in May of 2018. Ahtahkakoop School added 9 Garden Towers to their Library Resource Centre in the fall of 2019.
