From Land to Table
Historic Photograph Exhibition
May 10 - July 29, 2017
About the Exhibit
From Land to Table was a photographic exhibit based on archival photos and heritage recipes that trace the agricultural history of the Lakeshore Grounds. Pereira-Jardine followed the agricultural shifts in South Etobicoke from traditional Indigneous practices of harvesting manoomin (wild rice), to the farm history of the Goldthrope and MacNeil families and heritage recipes on how to properly cook a Passenger Pigeon, to the farmlands maintained by the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital, and to the apple trees that to this day produce fruit each year on the Lakeshore Grounds.
