Grand River Food Forestry

Rock Stone

Like the stone in the river

The ancient forest clinging to the cliff

The tribe of councils

We exhaustively find our way home

In tatters from lack of knowing

Freed soul spirit, we continue to arise

"Learning about biomimcry, permaculture and the ease of no till gardening from Nicola Jane inspired me, not only to create my own food forest in my garden, but also to co-lead another community project to build a large pollinator garden in a local park."

A peak inside
the book 

If you found the history you learned as a child, erased your people from the story, what would you do, or say and who would you say it to?

This compelling and thought provoking question is at the root of the noteworthy and inspiring book,

BLM COLLECTION ~ Soul to Soil.

This book emanated from the epic journey Nicola Jane embarked on, the "Sankofa 100 Miles To Freedom Tour 2022."

The tour was designed to bring awareness to the African Diaspora Freedom Fighters of Southwestern Ontario, their resilience, tenacity and heroism.

"Nicola Jane has a deep understanding of the soil. Which has translated to me having more pollinators in my gardens! I had the lucky fortune to meet her on her Sankofa 2022 van tour. Her YouTube videos have helped my understanding of Ecological Wellness".
