Community Meal (Postponed)
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 6:00pm
Based on feedback from our community we have opted to CANCEL the Virtual Community Meal previously scheduled for Wednesday, October 13th. We hope to coordinate an in-person event with United Way CKL at a future date.
In 2018 a monumental land use agreement was made between Crayola Canada and United Way CKL, turning over 30,000 square feet of unused land on the Lindsay Crayola commercial site into a community garden. Through the hard work of funders, community partners and volunteers, over 32,000 lbs. of food has been harvested through 3 seasons from Edwin Binney’s Community Garden.
For this virtual Community Meal, we invite participants to join us for a screening of “The Garden”, which explores the Community Garden’s first year of operations. Staff of United Way CKL, Community Investment Coordinator Shantal Ingram and Projects and Communications Coordinator Emily Beall, will also be in attendance to share details on how the gardens have expanded and answer questions from attendees.
