video: 'Milliken Munchkin's Plant Parsley'

Follow three generations of the Milliken family as they plant and grow parsley. Grandma and Grandpa
own and operate the Milliken Garden Centre. The Milliken Munchkins, Alice and Thomas steal the
show with their reactions. And Mom (Janyne) is the camera operator.

Because of covid, these Herbfest videos are unique because they are also home grown. Much like the
humble parsley plant.

This gives an 'in the moment' depth and feel to the video which wouldn't be found when using a camera

In no particular order, we love summer, taking care of our earth and herbs. From day to day, we use herbs for remedies, savoury food garnishes and spiritual purposes.

The museum is currently closed to the public during covid.

Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens has a collection of five historic museum buildings nestled in 8 acres of lovely gardens on the scenic shore of White Lake. An ancient Scottish Clan Chief ruled the roost here with an iron fist. Laird Archibald McNab brought over settlers and subjugated them to medieval feudal terms for almost 20 years.

Our vintage buildings have their stories. The stone house echoes Archibald's reign of error. The log church, schoolhouse, dairy barn and display building offer unique insights into the daily lives of our early residents.

In the 1970s, whale bones were discovered within 2 kilometres of our location. Today, these are important clues in a 2019 breaking news story that spans 12,000 years. New theories about comet strikes, melting ice caps, inland polar oceans, continental wildfires, mass extinctions of man, mammoths and other large mammals are attributed to this 'bad day'.

Ontario is covered by 46 treaties and other agreements, such as land purchases by the Crown signed between 1781 and 1930. Treaties are the legally binding agreements that set out the rights, responsibilities and relationships of First Nations and the federal and provincial governments.

Our goal is to encourage the acknowledgement of the First Peoples on whose traditional territories we live and work. This acknowledgement appropriately takes place at the commencement of courses, meetings or conferences, and presentations.

Acknowledging territory shows recognition of and respect for Aboriginal peoples. It is recognition of
their presence both in the past and the present. Recognition and respect are essential elements of establishing healthy, reciprocal relations. These relationships are the key to reconciliation, a process to which we are all committed.
