A message from Rachael:

Wow. It's almost June. We've been waiting for this all winter!

On the last pickup day, I had the pleasure of going on the run with Sharon, to pick up food from the Mennonite farmers who grow for us. It was lovely to meet so many of them and their families and dogs, see their fields, green houses, coolers and more. Sharons has a standing offer that if you would like to join her on this trip you are welcome! It's great to see where our food comes from and meet the people who grow it!

Have you ever tried Mountainoak Gouda? Adam and Hannie make some tasty Farmstead Gouda  in the Dutch tradition with the milk from their Holstein cows. Last Tuesday we visited their farm in New Hamburg and are excited to bring you a great selection of their cheese for pickup in UpTown Waterloo! My kids loved the Aged Farmstead and the black truffle gouda. Even better, we hope to have samples on Friday June 7th also!

Here are some awesome community events you might like to put in your calendar:
  1. Healing and Happiness through Farming
    Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 6:30pm, KPL Forest Heights Branch 251 Fisher-Hallman Road, Kitchener
    Organic farmer Candace Wormsbecker will discuss how we can use food as a transformation element in healing our relationship to ourselves. Building on an article she wrote for the Food System RoundtableĆ¢€™s blog, Candace will tell her personal story of how she came to see food as the blessing and miracle that it is and to get in touch with her own body and her environment.

    This event is part of the Waterloo Region Food System Roundtable's Healthy Food System series, hosted in partnership with the Kitchener Public Library.
  2. Chicken Coop Tour - June 15th!
    Hi friends, supporters, and associates of Waterloo urban chickens!
    We're doing a 2013 Chicken Coop Tour, and we'd like to invite you to come! The event is Saturday, June 15 from 11am to 3pm.
    The format will be similar to others years - i.e. the Public Square will be the hub of activity (and the place where you can pick up a map to the coops), and then members of the public can go to whichever coops they choose. Please see this link and then share it with your friends: http://www.waterloocooptour.com/
  3. ANIMATE THE TRAIL Ć¢€" Sunday, June 2
    This event should be quite interesting this year.  Our Neighbourhood Association is a co-sponsor with Victoria Park Neighbourhood Association.  Check out their website for details (www.animatethetrail.ca).They also have facebook and twitter if you like them better.  We will have activities at several locations along the trail in our neighbourhood, including a skateboard park at the end of Cherry Street, and the Tri-City Roller Girls along our stretch of the trail, plus much more.  Come out and check it out.
Enjoy this day!
