When: May 28, 2015
Time: 9:30 a.m. - noon
Location: Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming (GCUOF)
Each year, the Aboriginal Resource Centre brings in a group of Aboriginal 7/8 students from Nawash First Nation and Six Nations to participate in a 3-day program called EAGLE (Establishing an Aboriginal Gateway in Learning & Education). The students live in residence and experience three days in the live of a university student. They run a variety of programming, activities and workshops so they gain a better understanding of the many possibilities for post-secondary studies. This year they will go to the GCUOF.
Students at the organic farm will learn about planting squash, beans, and strawberries. Shovels, seeds, and transplants are enough to spark discussion about growing fresh food.
