LET'S LISTEN - LET'S GROW
Community Harvest Kingston is pleased to host a Special Event honouring First Peoples at its farmers market on Wednesday, July 26 from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.
Let’s Listen, Let’s Grow will be held outside St. Matthew’s United Church, 31 Weller Avenue, at the corner of Weller Avenue and Daly Street.
For this Free Event, Community Harvest joins the Kingston National Aboriginal Day Committee and Three Things Consulting to offer Traditional Foods, Drummers and Dancers, indigenous crafts and stories for children, as well as gardening activities at its children’s garden, along with its regular Farmers Market. Affordable, fresh local produce, baked goods, preserves, maple syrup, honey, prepared foods, and handmade jewellery will be for sale on-site from the market’s regular vendors. Market vouchers in exchange for filling out a survey will also be available.
Opening Ceremonies to honour and acknowledge the market site’s Aboriginal homelands with emcee Jolie Brant commence at 3:00 pm. Speakers include Community Foundation for Kingston & Area Executive Director, Tina Bailey, and Kathy Sturmey from Community Harvest Kingston.
Initiated in 2005, Community Harvest Kingston with the support of Kingston Community Health Centres, the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul and many other generous donors, offers increased choice to consumers to purchase local, healthy food through its organic gardens and community farmers market in Rideau Heights. A fixture in north Kingston over the past nine years, Community Harvest Market serves over 1,000 participants each market season from June to October. “I love fresh vegetables and pastries, so it is nice to be able to get them in my own neighbourhood,” one participant told market organizers.
This event is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Community Foundation for Kingston & Area, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

On August 14-15, 2017, thousands of Catholics will come together for two days of mass, adoration, confession, and so much more!

This Georgian Stone House of National Significance to Catholics. The charity group Glengarry Fencibles Trust has rescued the home of Ontario’s first Catholic bishop, Alexander Macdonell. From his house (1808) in St Raphael’s, he served the entire Catholic Church in Upper Canada, built churches and schools throughout the province including the first seminary. This amazing man was military chaplain (Glengarry Fencibles), politician, mentor to Ontario’s first premier and, as Bishop of Kingston (1826-40), he founded Regiopolis College and the Catholic Register. He laid the foundation for Ontario’s Catholic Schools. Restoration of this historic site as an interpretive centre has begun, with Parks Canada support.
