Thanks to all who came out to our CommuniTEA and Open House on Aug. 25.
We enjoyed meeting a lot of new people, including some who came from other projects such as ours to see what we’re doing and exchange ideas.
For the first time in two years, a yellow school bus drove into the yard! It was the Bridgewater Growing Green Festival Sustainability Tour. Those folks went on to visit Honeyberry Hurst Farm (LaHave Forests) and Kevin Veinotte’s Family Farm, and had a great day.
Our Artisan Showcase was open, Herbalist Jeanette Poirier led two plant walks and served her Blockhouse Blend Tea, Cuisine for Life and Ma Bells Country Condiments brought delicious and amazing food to sample, the Prometheus solar collector model was on display, Klassen Fine Woodworking‘s studio was open for viewing, our pallet garden, herb spiral and kitchen mandala garden looked their very best, and the bones of our big community mandala garden could be perceived.
For those of us who have been closely involved with the project, it was a good day to take stock of and appreciate all that has been achieved since we first had access to the site in April of this year.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this day a success, and special thanks to all those who came through our doors for the first time. Hope to see you again!
