How we perceive our places and landscape, including place names, informs how we perceive ourselves as a culture and what we value. What appears to be an undifferentiated old agricultural field, sitting quietly on Old Brooke Road in Maberley, Ontario, is a precise arrangement of named plants, animals and relationships. The self-guided Field Tour  (via interpretive nesting boxes) will guide visitors to corresponding experiences about the inter-relatedness and importance of this field to the world beyond the field. The Old Brooke Field becomes activated through this intervention by being a centre point that radiates out to the larger region, not a boundary but to other centers and connections, coming back and going out again.
