Native Child and Family Services Rooftop Garden in World Landscape Architecture

The Native Child and Family Services Rooftop Garden made it onto World Landscape Architecture recently. The online magazine described the rooftop ceremonial space as an unexpected urban experience; right in the downtown core, the roof is a respite for urban Natives to hold  public assemblies, sweat lodge ceremonies, drumming and circle sessions; as well as counsel, meet and play amongst lush indigenous plantings or around the gas fire pit. A sacred medicine garden planted with sweet grass, cedars, sage, and tobacco and a Three Sisters garden of corn, beans, and squash, support cultural heritage and environmental awareness and promote locally-grown ceremonial, medicinal and agricultural crops.
