Sunday March 16, at 1:00 Food Film Series Presents at Cornwall Public Library The Food Action Group presents the third in its Food Film Series 2014. This month’s film, ‘Urban Roots’, will be shown. This documentary gives us a look at how real resilience, a sense of community and need has spurred ordinary people in Detroit to take control of their food source. The city is facing a post-industrial future with dramatic loss of economy and population.   Whole neighbourhoods are in decay, but some people are seeing beyond this and recognising there is potential for a new way for growth. Together they are turning vacant lots into gardens that feed themselves and their neighbours, and even create employment.  The stories are thought provoking to all of us living in urban environments.

March 22, 10:00 a.m. APPLE PRUNING WORKSHOP at Connaught Acres Dennis Taylor from Cannamore Orchard will be the presenter. There will be tips on getting better production, grafting and tree insect management as well as hands on demonstrations on  pruning young and mature trees. Bring your own sanitized pruners and saws. Cost: $20 (refreshments included)  bring your own lunch. Kindly confirm by March 17, 613-448-3540
