Session 1: September 15, 6-8PM
Theme: Food, Belonging
Presenter: Peter Anderson (Carleton)
Title: Science, Plants, Food
Location: Experimental Farm
For the last 130 years Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm has supported Canadian agriculture through robust scientific programs. In this workshop, Peter Anderson will guide participants through a number of landscapes at the Farm, exploring how the choices of which plants to promote—as food for humans, as feed for animals, or as ornamentals for enjoyment—shape landscapes of belonging and unbelonging in the context of agricultural settlement and urban development since 1886.
