dc.description.abstractIn 2011, the Lhotsampa refugees from Bhutan who live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, worked with an immigrant services group to institute the Glen Garden community garden. Participation in the garden is especially important to this group of users. The garden has had an impact on acculturation for the Lhotsampa, both in terms of dietary and social integration into Canadian society. In particular, the garden proved to be important as a space for the Lhotsampa to connect with their identities in Canada, through a nostalgic connection with the past and through a concrete assertion of their place in Canada. The garden also serves several benefits to the older population who struggle to integrate due to language, including increased exercise, social activities and maintenance of traditional diets. There are several steps that could be taken to increase the utility of the garden which are outlined in Chapter 6.en_US
