Our First Potluck!

Last week, our garden was in full colours celebrating our first Community potluck. Around 25 families, from virtually every age, gathered in one place to savor and enjoy special homemade plates and delicacies! It was a great opportunity for all of us to appreciate our garden’s locally grown produce and the intimate circle that joins us. We didn’t forget to say good-bye to our former garden coordinator, Sarah Resnick, who’s getting ready to leave the country for the USA. Good luck Sarah!
