Youth Gardeners Cook and Share at Global Roots

We are right in the middle of our growing season, and the weather is beautifully sunny! The youth garden looks almost like a jungle with the way the greens are growing. We are excited about the harvesting, but we are also very excited about preparing and sharing food with fellow gardeners!

This week, it is the youth gardeners' turn to host the Cook and Share session for the Global Roots program participants. What's on the menu? Salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo and grated cheese as toppings for some organic corn chips and *drum roll* cucumber freshly picked from the youth garden!

This wonderful program by The Stop Community Food Centre run in partnership with CultureLink offers newcomer youth and seniors the opportunity to grow their own food, and learn about food and food equity issues. The participants get to learn from one another and share good food with each other.

In addition to food, the participants also get to grow flowers, and more importantly, their friendship.

Tomatoes and cucumber harvested by the seniors from the Filipino garden.

The program happens every Monday from 3pm to 5pm. Registration is required. Contact lyoung(at)culturelink.ca for more information!
