On top of growing edible produce for our clients and our kitchen we also make sure to plant a number of various flowers and plants for our bee and butterfly friends. Having a variety of plants for our pollinators helps the entire system to produce more.
A huge thank you to York Dental and Midtown Dental for their generous donation!!
Twice a month we host a Collective Kitchen where a group of 5-7 people get together, cook a bunch of food and then everyone goes home with eight portions of the dishes ready for freezing or eating!

Despite the incredibly hot and humid weather we've all been suffering through over the last month (or more), our garden is doing quite well. On top of this we also have a bumper crop of hot peppers and green bell peppers.

After 15 years of service our cargo van was on its last legs. Thanks to a grant through Food Banks Canada and the Walmart Foundation along with the great people at Trius Truck Center we now have this 2018 vehicle!
It was very exciting to be able to host the Maritime Gospel Music Association as they held a benefit concert here on our beautiful property. The backdrop of a thriving community garden was a great place to listen to some music and enjoy a pizza from our wood-fired oven.
We've posted our August classes before, but since we are now officially into August, it felt right to post them again. All our classes are open to the general community. If you see something you'd like to learn, don't hesitate to contact us.
Also, our Meals Made Simple program, which is an extension of our Learning Kitchen, is continuing to be developed. We are standardizing our recipes and will soon be working on the cost associated portion of the program. Come in for a tour to find out more about the program or if you have some free time to devote to it we'd love to chat with you! Keep an eye out for recipes we will be posting on our recipes section of this web page.

In the month of July we reached out to individuals, businesses and government groups to talk to them about the challenges Food Banks face in the summer months. Demand doesn't dip nearly as much as the support level does when people go away on holiday. We asked that they bring some Christmas spirit to the month of July. We received some instant response from individuals and now that July is over, some of the business and government groups are bringing in their food drive results.
On the left are some representatives from Department of Finance who not only did a food drive, but also brought in cash to help us out. Thanks for your great work!
On the right are Maggie and Morgan from Enbridge Gas NB. The folks at Enbridge Gas NB challenged their employees to bring in food items by promising to match every $5 worth of food with a $10 donation from the company. Great work, Enbridge Gas NB.
Large or small, every bit of support is appreciated as we seek to help. We are very grateful for all the members of the community as we wouldn't be able to do our work without you! If you would still like to give to our Christmas in July campaign, feel free to come in to visit us or click the donate button on this webpage!
