SINCE THE START OF THE GLOBAL COVID-19 PANDEMIC, SUSTAINABLE MERRICKVILLE-WOLFORD HAS BEEN WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE COMMUNITY TO HELP TO BUILD RESILIENCE THROUGH BETTER FOOD SECURITY.
Our first campaign to share our harvest with the Merrickville Emergency Food Cupboard at Rideau Community Health Services has been a great success! A huge thank you to everyone who pitched in. We hope this generosity will become part of our “new normal” going forward, especially as the colder weather approaches. See our Projects page to get more information on how to make a donation or access the cupboard.
We are also happy to announce that Sustainable Merrickville-Wolford and the Merrickville Public Library are partnering to grow a local seed library. If you grow a garden, consider donating some of your seeds, which can be dropped off at the library any time beginning this fall for distribution next spring.
Our meetings have shifted to ZOOM, from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Everyone is welcome to join us! A short agenda will be published on our Events page a week before each meeting.Events
