Call-Out for Idea Submissions - re: “It All Comes Back To The Land” 

 

We are a “land-library” cooperative called Biblioterre - a friend-group of Settler-Canadian- identifying environmentalists (farmers, gardeners, arborists, social workers, activists, etc.), residing in unceded Algonquin territory within the Canadian state provinces of Quebec and Ontario. Our intention is to manage an inclusive and accessible landbase for diverse projects, and for people who share in our principles of Equitability, Natural Responsibility, Holistic Health, and Indigenous Allyship. 

 

Biblioterre is working to purchase arable and forested Land in Algonquin Anishinaabeg territory, near the Te-nagàdino-zìbi a.k.a. Gatineau River in 2020-1. We plan to make 1/2 of the landbase available for Algonquin-led (status or non-status) initiatives. We are currently seeking proposals from groups and individuals, from across the Algonquin Nation, interested in participating in shared land stewardship. Biblioterre would love to support (for example)
