Due to generous donations that have come in through December and into January we're currently unable to accept clothing donations. Our volunteers need the time and space to sort everything that has come in already.
We'll be resuming accepting clothing donations in February. Thank you for your generosity!!
Twice a month Chef Yves puts on a collective kitchen. This is a hands on cooking experience and at the end you get to go home with 6-8 portions of what was made!
This month is Asian style dumplings - perfect for potstickers or wonton soup. Come and learn how to make pork, chicken and vegetarian dumplings and then take some home with you!
Tuesday January 15th - 6:00pm
Thursday January 17th - 12:30pm
Collective kitchens are free for our clients and $15 donation for the community.
Spaces are limited so please contact email@example.com to book your space.

We are excited to announce our latest offering from the Learning kitchen, Tasty Tuesdays! Come in Tuesday January 8th from 11 to 1 for a bowl of Wonton soup and some Pot stickers. Eat in or bring your own bowl and we can hook you up with Take out!
This is a free-will donation lunch open to all members of the community, so pay what you can.
Each Tasty Tuesday will support different programs here at Greener Village. This week we are collecting in support of our cooking class initiatives. This is something we would like to host a few time a month, so come out and fill your tummies on Tuesday and help Support The Greener Village.

Global News came and did a story on the cooking classes in our Learning Kitchen.
Every month we have three cooking classes/demos, two collective kitchens and one family class. The monthly schedule can be found here.
All classes and the collective kitchen are free to our clients. Classes are by donation to the public and the collective kitchen is $15 for the public.
The classes are quick 1/2 hour instruction demos done over lunch hour (12:30-1pm). The collective kitchens are longer (90 minutes) and hands on with each participant taking home 8-10 portions of what was made together.
The Boyce Farmers Market Stallholders Association stopped by with a $700 donation! Thank you so much!!
The second annual Turkey Race between the northside and the southside of Fredericton brought in an astounding number of turkeys (almost 1400). Thanks to the firefighters, Peter's Meat, Victory Meat and all the people of Fredericton who supported this in record numbers. To say we were blown away is a vast understatement!!
During this week and next we have many volunteers from businesses and companies in Fredericton who come in and pack and sort and get us ready for our Christmas hampers. It was a pleasure to have people from Kent Building Supplies (South) in to help us get ready to hit the ground running!
The donations have been rolling in! Groups such as UNB Varsity, STU Athletics, We Define NB, Epsilon Y's Service Club, Marysville Y's Service Club, 1RNBR, The Fredericton Golden Club and Bayview Trucks and Supplies! Thank you for your support!!
We are rapidly closing in on Christmas and our Angel Tree program is in full swing! So far this year we have just over 2500 angel requests but we know that the people of Fredericton (and environs) are amazing supporters of this program!
Thank you all so much for the continued support!
Thanks to UNB Varsity Sports for the donation!! Some much needed items as we get into the busiest time of the year for us!
