Mirella L. Stroink, Connie H. Nelson, and Brian McLaren, Lakehead University

This case study is featured on the Canadian Council on Learning and it specifically addresses the idea of contextual learning and community health for First Nations communities. “This report presents the development and findings of the Learning Garden program, which was developed and run in partnership with Ginoogaming and Aroland First Nations in Northwestern Ontario. The Learning Garden program was developed with the purpose of increasing physical, emotional, and social indicators of health, while taking an initial step toward community resilience in the area of food by increasing local food knowledge” (p. 6).
