Our garden at McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. Specifically, the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we garden today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
McGill's Faculty of Education garden is located on the Downtown campus between Coach House and Duggan House (and between the streets of Peel and McTavish) [map]. It offers a space to explore the incorporation of ecologically informed, socially aware teaching and learning for students, teachers, staff and community members.
