Outside the Healing Lodge

This is part of the view when standing with your back to the healing lodge and looking south across College St. Even though it was still May and early in our growing season the plantings on the roof of the Native Child and Family Services of Toronto building are doing very well. One whole area of the roof is planted with  traditional Anishnaabe medicines such as cedar, sweet grass and sage while other plantings include the three sisters of the Haudenosaunee culture, corn, beans and squash.  It must be fabulous up there by mid summer. While our little tour group of 4 people was up on the roof we got locked out there for a bit by the Sunday setting on the security - it was so peaceful that no one cared!

That's quite a sight and quite a site! Like those reflections. Funny about you getting locked out. What a lovely retreat in the middle of the city. Is the public allowed up there generally?
