We are bound by imposed colonial provincial borders.

These borders often differ from, and are at odds with the historical, cultural, and ecological realities of regions.

Plants, though, are bound by specific geographies and locations based on their growing needs: they don’t recognize constructed borders.

The political realities of these regions means that they are also now shaped by the centralization of the petroleum industry. While this project determines locations based on provincial borders out of convenience, it is my hope that you will consider the impacts of these imposed borders while you engage across it.

I’m hoping that, together, we can consider how plants might help us to think about these borders otherwise. If you haven’t already, please locate yourself with the help of native-land.ca
