Food & Garden Programs
The Hastings Community Learning Garden, right next to the community centre, is where we grow food for some of our food programs and educate neighbours from preschoolers to seniors on topics of nutrition, gardening, and sustainability.
Here’s what we’ll be offering for Winter 2021:
Growing Kids – 1-5 yrs
Get your kids excited about the world of growing things! Join us in the garden to learn about plants, soil, seeds and insects through fun and engaging activities. We’ll cover a different topic each week. Caregivers must be present throughout the class. Sessions will take place in the Community Hall or in the HCC Learning Garden. No session Feb 15.
