Community Gardens Stone Soup
Thu, 10 November 2016, 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM EST
The Community Gardens Network of Hastings & Prince Edward invites you to come together to enjoy a community potluck meal.
You will hear from keynote speaker David Lockett who will share the inspiring story of the PACT Grow-to-Learn Schoolyard Gardening Program. This innovative program teaches schools and communities about food and gardening. The program creates safe, experiential and positive learning environments in underserved neighbourhoods, as well as acts as a catalyst in raising awareness of important issues related to healthy eating/nutrition, food security, environmental sustainability and hunger in our schools and local communities.
Community garden leaders from across the region will also share success stories, and the CGN will host it's inaugural Annual General Meeting. Together, we can support the sustainable development of community gardens in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties.
The Community Gardens Network would like to thank the Healthy Communities initiative of Hastings Prince Edward Public Health and the many partners that have supported it's establishment.
A free will offering will be accepted to support the growth of the Network.
