June 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

Sorry it’s late folks, I’ve been busy!!

No excuses, I know. Here you go, get busy:

Get involved with Hamilton’s Community Gardens at the City of Hamilton or the Hamilton Community Garden Network.

Check out the Hamilton Fruit Tree Project, pick fruit for Hamilton Food Share and get a portion of the pickings for yourself.

Why not take your kids/boyfriend/wife/lover/friend/neighbour/archenemy pick your own strawberries!? Lindley’s Farm‘s 10 acres of strawberries are opening for picking now, and they don’t use insecticides or fungicides.
