    Hi Jenny
    I think I may be too late, but wondering if Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections – the Lake Trail Community School Garden, can get a small table for Saturday. We’d like to set up a display of the garden, the workshops we do and volunteer opportunities. We’ve attended in the past. It’s really a good chance to get the word out about the beneftis of helping with Edible Schoolyards.
    unfortunately, Our coordinator left us suddenly and this fell into the gap. We’ve spoken with LUSH about setting up next to them and sharing the time.
    Please let me know if we can get a small space – much appreciated .
