Urban Gardening

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.
