Canning and pickling are easy, but the process requires lots of space and a little patience. So join us -- Lisa and Chloë -- at a big commercial kitchen in Kitsilano to pickle some vegetables and can fresh fruit on Saturday September 13, 2014 from noon-8pm.

Want to attend? Let us know here. Kitchen space is limited!

Lower Hume Park

For promoting my project, I designed a poster and had posters up in Judy Darcy's office, BC housing seniors house, Royal City Centre and Seniors Services Society. On Friday June 27, I rented out the picnic shelter in Lower Hume Park and invited all the seniors in New Westminster to come for BBQ and Bingo in the park. We provided free hotdogs, burgers, salads, fruits, coffee teas and water for everyone. We also had MLA Judy Darcy sponsored us with a cake.

Connaught Heights Park, New Westminster

What a wonderful 8 days in our neighbourhood! We began our project Monday, with kids from ages 3-18 years making painted butterflies with mini-flashlight tails, to be used as decorations in our final performance. Classical Indian dance moves were taught to the group next by local teen dancers Simran and Rachelle. All the teens were wonderful mentors to the younger fry all week. The last hour of each day was reserved for rehearsals of the edited script of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
