Welcome to all our new members, especially those from Breslau who are ordering for pickup at our satellite location!
If you're new here and want to read more, check out our past emails at It's a great way to learn about the local foods to expect all year long!

A Note about the May 11th pickup:There will be lots going on at First United Church!

Seedlings from Sarah's Kitchen Gardens will be outside on her trailer. There will also be seedlings from Nith Valley Organics but we're not sure where yet. Both should be sorted by your name to make things a little easier!

Candace from Transpire Organics will have a table so you can stop by and say "Hi", thank her for the lovely food she grows for us and ask her questions about the Wellness Program she is starting this year! It's very exciting and we want you to check it out even if you don't get a chance to say chat with her this week.
What is Transpire Organic's Wellness Program?The Wellness Program builds on the ideal that food connects us to the land, to each other and to the miracle of life. It has the power to nourish all parts of our lives -- body, mind and spirit. Check out the amazing schedule here.

Seeds of Diversity will also have a small display at our May 11th pickup. They have an awesome project that you can sign up for! Read on:
Here at Seeds of Diversity, we are in the midst of creating a new and improved "citizen science" project - The Purplestem Aster Pollination Adventure (PAPA!) and we have funding to offer a select number of participants free seedlings of the plants.
In a nutshell, all the participants need to do is agree to freely accept six (6) purplestem asters (native plant) and plant them on their property (sun or partial sun). The asters bloom in August, and they count the total number of blooms on each plant. A couple weeks later, they snip off five (5) seed-heads from each of their six (6) plants and get them back to us at Seeds of Diversity. We will then pass them on to our CANPOLIN scientist who works at UoGuelph.

You might also see one of Grand River CarShare's fleet (a shiny new Toyota Matrix?) outside our pickup and a couple representatives inside to chat with.
Grand River CarShare - your local car co-operative - is hoping to expand its member base, and thus fleet, in uptown Waterloo. This week you may start seeing signs on members' lawns in your neighbourhood as part of the effort. As you may know, CarShare provides self-serve access to an additional vehicle for the trips that need it - compact, wagon, minivan, cargo van (this last is coming very soon). We've recently introduced new rates that make it easier to join. Stop by our table at this week's pick-up and we'll be happy to answer any questions you have!

We'll write more on the weekend!

Enjoy the sun!
