On June 29, 2017, in Bancroft, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Métis Healthy Babies Healthy Children Coordinators Tammy Hoover and Robin Simpson partnered with the Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit – Food for Two program to host a traditional gathering for pre and post-natal women. The gathering included a workshop on how to create moss bags for their babies.

The women were taught how to fashion moss bags with their hands and learned traditional teachings about the moss bag.
