Anishinaabe Binesi Summer Day Camp

Algoma University Urban Farm Education, Anishinaabe Binesi Summer Day Camp ran for three summers 2014-2016 and was funded by the NSERC PromoScience Program. It was developed by Algoma University faculty and staff (Departments of CESD, Geography & Geology, and Biology) in partnership with Algoma University’s Anishinaabe Initiatives Division and the Rural Agri-Innovation Network (RAIN). It was a day camp hosting elementary school students, and taught about urban farming and food in a hands-on format within a science-based context, and incorporated Anishinaabe culture and custom teachings.
