Two fantastic networking teleconferences are coming up March 25 (Community Gardens) and March 27 (Community Kitchens). Register soon! These teleconferences are an opportunity to ask questions, share tips, and connect with other groups province-wide. Join in if your initiative is brand new or experienced; you're sure to take something great away.
The combination of increased cooking skills, knowledge about nutrition, being more aware of how to stretch your food dollar, hands-on learning, peer support, and learning about other programs in the community all contribute to success for these participants. “People had the idea that buying fresh vegetables, or healthy food, was more expensive. We do a comparison of that and then they realize that they can afford to buy healthy food" explains Bernice.
FEASt Open Garden Day is a great opportunity to tour some of the edible gardens of St. John’s, share skills and discover new ways to grow food.
