Green Thumbs is in our 16th year of operation, and our 7th year since incorporating as a non-profit organization. Our Board of Directors, always an eclectic and fun bunch, completed strategic planning with volunteers and staff in 2014. We are looking for three new Board members. Please see the posting here.
Our Annual General Meeting will be on Thursday June 25, 5-7 pm, here at our new digs at the Centre for Social Innovation Regent Park (585 Dundas St. E., 3rd floor). Chimu Titi and Urban Roots Youth participants will be creating and serving a lovely light seasonal meal with many ingredients from our gardens. The theme is Hot Days… Cool Cuisine!
Chimu and the youth will prepare foods that in the Ayurvedic tradition are cooling, refreshing and support the body through the summer heat. Sweet Massaged Kale Salad with Sesame Dressing, Veggie Pasta with Basil Pesto, Vegan Bubble & Squeak potato pancakes, and BBQ tempeh are on the menu. To drink? Strawberry and mint lemonade with healthy sweeteners, and Lemon Cupcakes with Juneberry compote for dessert. You gotta come!
RSVP to Cassie Scott, info (at) kidsgrowing.ca, by June 18. The cost to join and vote is $15.00. Current members (joined since October 2014) can renew for $5.00.
