Garden Harvest Farmer’s Market
Simkin Garden Harvest Farmer’s Market Program – We are very lucky at the Simkin Centre to have some wonderful garden spaces behind the Weinberg building and the Simkin building. Every year the recreation staff plant those spaces with some of our residents. What are some of the things we plant? Tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, beans, carrots, dill, radishes, kohlrabi, onions and sometimes fruit.
Then we enjoy charting the progress of the fruits of our labour when we go outside to enjoy our warm summer days. When the garden is ready, we harvest our bounty and create wonderful things to eat.
At the Farmer’s Market program, the following recreation staff were introduced, representing the following locations: Alissa from Altona, Olga from Oak Bluff, Lydia from Lorette, Shelley from Stonewall and Shannon from St. Frances Xavier.
