Guelph Horticultural Society Indigenous Territorial Acknowledgement

The land we cultivate today, and all of Turtle Island, has been under the stewardship of Indigenous peoples, and has been the site of Indigenous tilling for over a thousand years. ...The Guelph Horticultural Society recognizes that the land we work on is ancestral land of the First Peoples and the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. We offer respect to the First Nation, Inuit, and Metis peoples of this land - past, present and future. We recognize the significance of the Dish with One Spoon Treaty, an old treaty that encourages us to take what we need, leave enough for future generations and keep the dish clean. From this treaty we understand our role in preserving the habitats for the future of all living species. We are grateful for the knowledge of native plants that our Indigenous people share with us. We are grateful and honoured to have the opportunity to gather, celebrate, learn and cultivate this land.
