I have half a yard of soil in the back of my truck. Need to get it gone! Happy to deliver it to your Cedar Cottage area curb for $25 :)

Hi All,

The Neighbourhood Small Grants are back again, and the deadline for applications (a very simple 2 pager) for the Cedar Cottage neighbourhood is April 30th. Check it out at

Looking forward to exciting projects emerging!

Hello everyone!

Sending love, hugs and hellos to my fellow villagers. I wanted to share that tonight a dozen of us met at Kensington Library to discuss Food Security in the Cedar Cottage Trout Lake 'hood and it was a very fun wonderful night!  There will be more activity coming from this group this year and I am excited - hope to cross paths soon :)

Hoping that a few people living in the Cedar Cottage area join our seed saving collective for 2012.  We are down to 2 members in our core group and this will severely limit our ability to hold workshops (for the benefit of the public) and to continue growing out our available seed stock. Please email me if you are interested in helping out.  Thanks.

The blueberries are ready and wondering if anyone in my village is interested in going out for a couple of hours (preferably arriving at 10 am at the farm) for an old-fashioned blueberry u-pick. DFG Blueberries has been a blueberry farm bearing the title organic, since 1993!  I can offer a carpool ride (max. 3 seats available). We could also do veg.lunch if interested.  Email me before the weekend. Thanks.
