Indigenous Community & Healing Garden

We are very excited that in partnership with the Town of Ajax, and supported by the tremendous & experienced folks at We Grow Foods & Miinikaan Innovation & Design, a new Indigenous Community & Healing Garden has been built at Ajax Pickering Hospital in 2022. 


The Garden was officially opened on May 26, 2023.  Click here to see photos.


The design & chosen plants thoughtfully integrate components of indigenous history and learnings, as well boast some of our favourite vegetables.


The garden provides a space of relief and recreation for hospital staff, patients, volunteers and community members as well as enhance our connection to the indigenous peoples of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island.


And the foods harvested from the garden are shared with the Salvation Army Ajax for their food kitchen, and all community members are welcome to pick & eat any of the ripened vegetables.
