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.
