My daughter’s school is cancelled and it is treacherous to get around. Let’s all connect at Veith House on May 6 at 9 a.m. Please email if you are interested in the community garden project (details below). Thanks and apologies. Lisa
A quick reminder that Tuesday, April 1, at 9 a.m. will be the next Multi-Service Roundtable at Veith House. No joking! I’ve gotten a number of emails from service providers who are looking to connect with other community organizations and I am hopeful that it will be well attended and productive. Notes from the March roundtable give you an idea of the kind of information that gets shared around the table: March 4 – Roundtable.
We had a good meeting on March 19 at Needham Centre. One result: we will go ahead and apply to use land adjacent to Needham Centre as a community garden! That application has to go in within the next week and must include a plot plan. So far, I have interest in a raised bed plot from Needham’s Youth Leadership team, Needham Pre-School and two community residents. There will also be a NECC bed of food to share.
If you, your organization, your neighbour, or someone you know would like a plot, please let me know by replying to this message by April 3. Please note: we must apply to HRM for access to the land and I don’t know if there will be a limit on the number of beds we can establish in year one. There are also community gardens in the works at both Veith House and Mulgrave Park through Progress in the Park.
