Little City Farm hosted the first outdoor version of their popular Little Bird Told Me eco craft sale. Enchanting! Like a miniature Christkindl market. With warm apple cider and people to talk to every ten steps, it was the perfect way to usher in winter & the festive holiday season.
Meanwhile, over at the neighbourhood Christmas party, it looked like a production line! Personal items, snacks, mittens and hats were packed into “stockings” decorated with well wishes and greetings to participants at St. John’s Kitchen. Seriously, don’t miss this next year!
This is the heart of the stocking packaging factory – it runs like a well-oiled machine with Steve & Ingrid at the helm!
Just a portion of the 144 “stockings” filled by midtown Mount Hope neighbours!
Happy Holidays, indeed!
Mark demonstrating his counting technique – perfect count!
144 stockings filled in under two hours – whew!!
144 stockings filled in under two hours!
Clean up time… it’s a good indicator of community when everyone sticks around for the cleaning up. An amazing group effort!
Michell, Mark, Dave, Lindsay & Rachel packing the stockings that will get delivered to St. John’s Kitchen on Monday.
Leave the vacuuming to the one who loves power tools 🙂
Over at the Cloud White Collective at the corner of Waterloo & Duke, artist Meg Leslie & friends kept things were dreamy & delicious!
