Returning to Ourselves: Mending Relationships to Land, Kin and Self | Gardening & DIY Fest

Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Sacred Roots food sovereignty project is reclaiming ancestral knowledge and empowering community to produce food that nourishes the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. By reconnecting people to their traditional foods and growing practices, community members have an opportunity to cultivate a deeper sense of identity, belonging, and wellness. Come learn from presenter Shiloh Maples how the Detroit indigenous community is creating space and opportunities for land-based wellness in the urban landscape.
This event is just one part of our 3rd Annual Gardening & DIY Fest on Saturday, May 18 from 11:00-5:00 PM. In addition to the workshops there will be vendors selling handmade wares, plants, fresh flowers, body care and more!
