Ancestral Food Systems of the Far Northeast

This workshop details the Seeds of Renewal Project’s research concerning ancestral Wabanaki geo-intensive agricultural engineering and bio-intensive permaculture systems and crop nurture through sophisticated fertilizing and ritual systems. We also discuss how crop, cuisine, culture and ceremony unite at the Wabanaki Green Corn Ceremony, the Project’s current (2017-2018) focus in its food systems revitalization program.

Fred Wiseman, Abenaki, ethnobiologist, writer and advocate specializing in Indigenous Wabanaki food systems.
