Five ways to build community in North End Halifax (in the next few weeks)


Saturday, Oct. 4, 12- 4 p.m., NECC garden, just off Union St. at Needham Park parking lot. The NECC garden is expanding.  Come help us assemble new beds and fill them with soil.



(We’ll also be unloading some manure on Thursday, Oct. 2, from about 3:30 – 4:30. No joke. This is #2.  Send a note to if you want to wield a shovel.)


Tuesday, Oct. 7, 9 a.m., Veith House: the regular North End Roundtable is a chance for organizations and individuals to share news of programs and identify ways to collaborate.  (Notes from the September roundtable are here: North End Roundtable Sept 9,2014 .)  All are welcome.


Wednesday, Oct. 15, 5 – 7 p.m., Mulgrave Park United Baptist Church, 5666 Sebastian St. Please join your neighbours (and invite one!) for a community meal and a chance to celebrate the good things happening in the North End. All ages welcome. Thanks to a Community Development Fund grant from the Halifax Community Health Board, we have funds to cover both food costs and childcare.  All the same, we’ll celebrate all the gardening that’s happening in North End backyards and community gardens by creating a Stone Salad (a variation on Stone Soup).  Please bring spare greens: lettuce, kale, nasturtium flowers or leaves, chives, etc.  We’ll contribute the Hope Blooms salad dressing – as well as the main course, of course.


Can you volunteer to help cook a healthy meal for a crowd on the afternoon of Oct. 15?  If so, please contact Lisa.
