ROUND HILL RENAISSANCE AGRICULTURE FOUNDATION
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
We acknowledge that the Round Hill Renaissance Agriculture Foundation is located on Treaty 6 territory, Métis region 2, and a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous peoples. This Land provided a travelling route and home to the Maskwacis Nêhiyawak, Niitsitapi, Nakoda, and Tsuut'ina Nations, the Métis, and other Indigenous peoples. The Round Hill Renaissance Agriculture Foundation recognizes that Indigenous knowledge and agricultural traditions are appropriated and heavily entrenched in the gardening practices and ethics that we regularly practice and we acknowledge our privilege in acquiring and applying this knowledge.
We pay respect to the First Nations and Metis ancestors of this land by dedicating efforts to regenerate the land, water and air in their name.
If you travel through Round Hill you may have seen the beehive of activity along the former railroad line. A site where grain elevators once towered over the hamlet, is now the new home for the Round Hill Renaissance Agriculture Foundation foodscape, a community garden and food forest.
Our small community is collaborating with a variety of institutions, organizations, businesses and individuals to develop a long range plan, the garden is the first step toward a sustainable food source within the community.
