Celebrating 7 years of the Victory Garden Community Gathering

The Harvest Gathering is a celebration of the connections we experience to the Earth, for each other and tasting delicious foods.  This is the 7th year of the Victory Garden Celebrations and due to the response for the hearty soups last year, we decided to bring it back.  For the Victory Garden, the 2017 season was challenging from a weather perspective, fixing equipment and installing technology.  The great news is our friends and faithful supporters, who as always gave all.

There is much to celebrate with our local friends.

The weather definitely have changed and so must we.  Our future plans include more greenhousing strategies and digital education.   Learning to cope and reducing our carbon footprint increases our resolve and response to changing conditions.  Greenhouses, Hoophouses, coldframes and other season extension strategies are ways will influence the operational side of the garden in the coming years.

A joint event by Simcoe United Church, held on November 24th, 2012 was a big success.  We agreed to provide 150 tickets and to raise $3000.00.  With 41 donations and tickets sold, the goal was easily achieved.  The evening’s MC, Mr. Thomas Henry, (Glenn McKnight), welcomed everyone, followed by the Kentucky Militia bursting in the doors, demanding the buried treasure. Mr Colin Carrie toast to the Queen, and Doug Wylie played God Save the Queen.  Partners, in addition to Simcoe United Church included:

*Mr. Robert Bell

*Pickering Museum

*The Revellers

*Melissa McKnight and Jason Dasti

A fashion show presented by Ms Julie Oakes was awesome.  The evening was enjoy by all.
