Event Overview

Join us for a Growing Gathering as we help clean and prepare the Indigenous Gathering Space garden for the upcoming growing season from 11:30am to 1pm.

The Indigenous Gathering Space garden is on the Kingston campus, near entrance E39 by the Waasaabiidaasamose Indigenous Centre.

St. Lawrence College and Red Squirrel Conservation Services partnered to transform part of a parking lot into an Indigenous Gathering Space through a “depaving” event, which saw volunteers from the college and wider community working together to remove pavement to make space for a garden. The garden is a place for our community to learn about Indigenous cultures, traditional ceremonies, and connection to the land.

“Depaving” demonstrates how communities can create green spaces to divert water from our sewer systems and allow it to filter into the soil before entering our waterways, keeping our water cleaner and our communities more resilient to flood events.
