About the Project
Enjoying a cup of tea is a way to come into the present moment, unwind, and connect with loved ones. The Tea Garden will be based in a local, urban setting in Belleville. The garden will feature perennial herbs and native species that can be harvested to make tea along with informative signage to encourage engagement and learning. It will be a beautiful and accessible meeting place for community members of all ages to gather for educational workshops, storytelling, tea parties and other opportunities for connection.
