Medicine Wheel Garden
Oshawa Community Health Centre opened its Healing Garden in June 2012. The Medicine Wheel Garden is reflective of teachings of the Anishnaabe people indigenous to this territory. It offers a place for quiet mediation and personal reflection. The garden includes the four sacred medicines. Each of the medicines are available to the community for harvesting. The garden is accessible by walking around the north end of Conant Complex - located on the northwest corner of the property.
