Friday, June 10th at Earth to Table: The Farm for Bites Boots and Bad Dance Moves in support of YMCA Beyond the Bell.
In May students from YMCA Beyond the Bell visited The Farm to help plant fruits and vegetables that will later be used at Earth to Table restaurants.
The children planted a variety of tomatoes, peppers, beans and more. For some of the children, it was their first time visiting a farm.
At YMCA Beyond the Bell, the children have been learning about nutrition, healthy eating and learning about the connection from farm to plate.
In the Fall, the children will return to The Farm to see how their seedlings have grown and will harvest the vegetables.
In the Fall, the children will harvest the vegetables and use them to make their very own pizzas.
The children use the vegetables to make their very own pizzas cooked right at The Farm. Yum!
Join us on Friday, June 10th at The Farm to support YMCA Beyond the Bell and ensure that other children have healthy learning experiences just like this.
On Saturday, May 14, 2016 more than 240 riders in three cities came together at their local YMCA to ride and raise funds to send local children to swim lessons, summer camp, afterschool programs and more. Together everyone who supported Cycle for Kids 2016 helped to raise more than $60,000 to benefit kids.
The shoe is amazingly intact, especially given its age. Buried for likely one hundred or more years, this relic belies the craftsmanship of its original maker. Was it a sample from the Agnew shoe company that started in Brantford in 1879 and went on to become a national chain of 104 stores, or perhaps the handiwork of William Dutton, one of the city’s earliest cobblers who set up shop on Colborne Street in 1822? That is still being determined. Either way, this simple pegged shoe tells part of the story of Brantford’s people and its past, a story that can now be told with new insight.
The shoe is but one of nearly 400,000 artifacts unearthed at the site on Colborne Streetin Brantford that will become the future home of the new health, fitness and aquatics complex being built through a partnership between the governments of Canada and Ontario, Wilfrid Laurier University and the YMCA. Archeological discovery work at the site was completed at the end of 2015. Archeologists are now working through the trove, cataloging and photographing each item, and researching their origins.
