Tyendinaga Justice Circle Working with Clients to Sow Seeds for Food Security
(Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Ont.) -- This fall, the Tontakaiê:rine (It Has Become Right Again) Tyendinaga Justice Circle embarked on a new project to help their clients complete their community service hours and to enhance their knowledge and skills in food sustainability.
Over the past months, members of the Tyendinaga Justice Circle (TJC) designed and built 12 above-ground garden boxes. The compact two-foot-deep bed design was intentional, so that vegetable roots could remain fresh in nutritious soil rich in composted matter at all times.
