I felt and tasted the love in the room at the Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) Gathering on May 25, 2018, held at the Polish Friendship ZGODA Society in Vancouver. It was palpable and palatable.

What if instead of trying to do it all at once, you did one thing right, one at a time?

Our Block Party Meet & Greet held on July 29, 2018, was a HUGE success! A great turn out and so much fun. Ours is a brand new Block Watch area comprised of townhouses and detached homes with residents with a wide range of ages and residency experience in Canada. Like many neighbourhoods, residents tend to drive home at the end of a busy day and not interact with each other.

Building on the success of last year's neighborhood meet and greet, this year we are inviting neighbors outside of the complex to better get to know one another. We will be having a bbq and sharing information on Emergency Preparedness.

Thanks to receiving a Neighbourhood Small Grant, our small strata community in Oliver spent a sunny late afternoon getting to know one another better and meeting some neighbours for the first time! We BBQ'd burgers and hotdogs and some contributed to the potluck their favorite dish. Each unit in the complex chose from an array of flowering plants, herbs and succulents to create their own beautiful planter to take home. The kids also got their own mini pot and planted their very own planter.
