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.

Snowy Lunch

It snowed, it rained and it generally was a really bad day. The kind that gets into your bones and you just want to pull up the covers and stay in bed. Or at least indoors with a hot brew and a really good book or movie. Still they came to the Hot Lunch sponsored by Senors Connect, Faith Lutheran Church, 1907 King Street East at Rosedale. It brought light and warmth to the day. It must be the appeal of a home made hot meal, fellowship and the charisma of the guest Chef Nick. We were entertained, learned new skills, food tips and ate really, really well. Our next guest will be Clare who will bring us up to date on the Neighbour to Neighbour new Food Centre. Join us March  30, 2016 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Email faithchurchinformation@gmail.com for information or call 905 549-5550. See you soon!
