EVENT: Beyond Terroir
This weekend, Benjamin Bridge is hosting their fifth Beyond Terroir event, an annual culinary and educational experience in allyship with Glooscap First Nation. The event will feature three culinary stations across the vineyard with Mi’kmaq knowledge holders (Graham Marshall and Clifford Paul of Membertou First Nation, and Sutik and Joe Googoo of Wagmatcook First Nation) at each, who will speak on various topics around this year’s theme – Netukulimk Now. Topics will include discussions on Netukulimk and the climate crisis, how the concept can guide us towards a sustainable future, and how allies can learn from Netukulimk.
Netukulimk is the Mi’kmaq concept of living sustainably on the land. It guides individual and collective beliefs and behaviours in resource protection, procurement, and management to ensure and honour sustainability and prosperity for the ancestor, present and future generations.
While learning from the speakers, you’ll enjoy thoughtful food and drink pairings made with ingredients from local producers and Benjamin Bridge’s culinary garden.
All profits from ticket sales for this event will go directly to Glooscap First Nation to support community and social development.
