Welcome, one and all, to Seedling for Change‘s new website!
At its core, the purpose of this website is to reach out to our community and invite discussion, brainstorming, feedback, and connection. Not only do we want to hear from you, but we want you to hear from each other! Seedling for Change is, at its heart, about building a network of passionate contributors and, most importantly, friends who can share in one another’s visions and create positive change at every level. As such, we welcome and encourage discussion in the comments. Our home is your home.
And so, to start things off on a lighthearted note, we begin with these two “contracts” from the Mackenzie Printery in Queenston, ON, visited by our own Maria del Carmen Suescun Pozas and Steve Nadon.
Using a screen reader and/or can’t view images? The attached two images read as follows:
PRINTER’S INDENTURE: Let it be known that (Maria del Carmen Suescun Pozas / Steve Nadon) By printing this brief contract has hereby agreed to apprentice in W.L Mackenzie’s Printing Office, and after the manner of an apprentice shall dwell, remain, and serve for the duration of the term of seven years. The said apprentice shall faithfully serve and follow the rules of this establishment. Dice, cards, or any other unlawful games they shall not play. Matrimony within the said term they shall not contract. Taverns and Ale-houses they shall not haunt. On this glorious day, Monday, May 9, 2016.
Have you ever been to the Mackenzie Printery? We’d love to hear your experiences!
