New Workers at the Garden

As our first crops come in this season and we prepare to start distribution to our partner food banks, meals-on-wheels etc we are pleased to welcome the assistance (once a week we hope) of the willing workers from the McGill Ag-Connect Project .

This project seeks to develop self-confidence for intellectually challenged youth through agricultural work experiences that foster life skills. The program has been developed as an inclusive, educational summer opportunity based on food production; providing an accessible opportunity for the intellectually challenged and Work-Oriented Training Path (WOTP) youth which are part of the McGill and greater Montreal community.

It looks like they had a great time in the garden.

Everything is growing well

We took a turn around the garden this morning to see how the vegetables are coming along. Everything is growing fast and looking healthy … won’t be too long before we are able to make our first deliveries to the food banks and meals on wheels people.
