Hi Ross, I met you at an event last year at Heritage Hall. I'm the editor of the Right to Food Zine and was distributing them. Received the invitation to join from Roberta Robertson about the neighbourhood small grants. We've applied.
Thanks, and let the sunshine in.

Hi Ross,

Thanks for all the information!
I would like to get involved, but tomorrow actually I will not be in Kits so will not be able to join the seed packet work party. I will keep up to date with the events page though and hopefully join you at the next opportunity.

Hope you had a good day gardening today - the weather was beautiful! =)

Cheers!

Hi Ross,

Thanks for the message! I would definitely be interested in hearing more about the gardening opportunities. And as for this Sunday, I'm not sure if I would be able to help, but if you could send me some more info, maybe I could drop by for a bit?

Thanks very much,
Kasia
