Peeking our heads out of the soil

Circuit breaker got us resting, slowing down and changing directions for the summer. Summer servings and garden projects are on pause while NS is in lockdown but we still have food security in our mind!

We have some plans to get you planting, writing, driving, eating together in the summer! Coming next is detailed info on events, volunteer and job opportunities!

A seed/supply and support sharing group for growing food in your backyard! If you are located in K'jipuktuk and would like help starting your garden you can fill this google form, join our Facebook gardening group, and join us every Tuesday at 5pm on instagram for our weekly garden check-ins!

Students in Halifax, NS can sign up here to receive a biweekly free market box from the Halifax Brewery Market, organized  by Farmer's Market NS Nourishing Communities Program, The Loaded Ladle and Halifax Brewery Farmer's Market for the next four months! 

A weekly supper club through May and June, to help keep us all connected. This week will be the first: join in through zoom for casual chats & recipe swaps. We are looking into the possibility of gift cards to help with purchasing ingredients for next week: stay tuned!
