BBQ and Father’s Day Crafts in the Interfaith Learning Garden
National Garden Days will be celebrated June 9 – 18th this year, and Interfaith Food Bank would like to invite all citizens to join us in a Garden Celebration on Friday, June 16th.
South Country Co-Op will provide a FREE COMMUNITY BBQ in the Interfaith Learning Garden; and food bank staff and volunteers will offer garden tours and crafts such as Stepping Stones, Seed Bombs, Rock Painting and Card Making – perfect for kids to prepare for Father’s Day gifts.
Garden Days is Canada’s coast to coast to coast, ten-day celebration of our National Garden Day which is held annually on the Friday before Father’s Day. This ten-day program of activities and events is for gardening enthusiasts, families, schools and tourists alike. Garden Days is an opportunity for Canadians to enjoy their own garden, visit or take part in their favorite garden experience, get inspired at their local garden centre or travel to a nearby destination to enjoy their favorite garden. Visit www.gardendays.ca for more information on various other activities that are taking place around Lethbridge over the weekend.
The Interfaith Learning Garden was established in 2013 to provide our community with opportunities to learn about enhancing food security by growing a garden, and to promote active and healthy lifestyles. Throughout the gardening season, community members can participate in tours, workshops and other garden related activities.
Free Community BBQ Sponsored by South Country Co-Op 11am – 2pm
Garden Tours and Fathers’ Day Kids Crafts 11am – 3pm
