We are so fortunate. What a joy it is to pick our sour cherry crop right in the urban city.
There is an abundance of cherries this year due to the long wet winter and the sudden extreme heat. We so enjoyed picking the crop while in dappled shade in this extreme heat.
All four of our summer interns Jeremy, Lliam, Monique and Damian participated. The crop, while plentiful, was divided between Neighbour to Neighbour and the Indigenous Native Women’s shelter. We give thanks for this bounty and were sure to leave enough for our local birds to enjoy.
What an exciting day we had. First, we welcomed two new interns Damian and Lliam and then chapped that off with a visit to Liberty for Youth. What a grand way to get into the swing just after our marvelous Canada Day celebrations. We visited and cooked our way through the evening making blueberry bran muffins for dessert and then stir-fried chicken and fresh veges. This we served with ramian noodles and we taste tested everything. We give thanks for a great day.
An enjoyable lasagna hot lunch with salad was enjoyed while watching slides from our recent visit to Jordan and the Holy Land. The refugee camp was an unforgettable experience especially during Holy week. All donations received were donated to Canadian Lutheran World Relief with dedication to Most Urgent Needs: Africa children’s nutrition. Haven’t enjoyed a Hot Lunch yet? Join us April 25 at 11:30 1907 King Street East at Rosedale.
We enjoyed an awesome cooking class with area youth. Made our own version of mac and cheese using Good Food Box vegetables. Yum! Enjoyed delicious smoothies, garden salad and topped off with fresh cantelope for dessert. Great fun!

We enjoyed our first barbecue of the season featuring fresh sausages, potatoe wedges and coleslaw. It was grand. This was followed by our guest speaker, Theresa Phair, City of Hamilton, sharing her personal experience and her love of urban gardening for City Housing. We were truly inspired and enjoyed this energetic and honest presentation. Already there are calls for her return! Join us July 27 for our next event.
