When Cedar Cottage Food Network reached out and asked for support with visual aids for their programs and events, I was thrilled to continue my adventures in food security work. This project was incredibly valuable to me because, just like my other projects have brought me newfound respect and admiration for the people around me, through this experience, I gained a newfound appreciation for the flora and fauna of B.C. I must say, this land-based knowledge has been more rewarding than any financial exchange ever could be. I take this knowledge with me on every nature walk in every season. The greatest challenge I faced on this project was incorporating the medicine wheel in a way that authentically honoured the generational and cultural knowledge held in its symbolism without flattening and appropriating it. In the end, I was happy with the flexible graphic I provided for the team with which they could continue to update their medicine wheel garden graphic with the appropriate seasonal inclusions.
