It's That Time of Year Again!

 'Tis the season to harvest and reap the benefits of hard work! This fall Garden2Table hosted two school visits in the garden, where St. Ignatius of Loyola's grade 7 class and Jean Little school's grade 3/4 class enjoyed digging for heirloom carrots, picking many varieties of tomatoes, gathering ground cherries and even tasting some ripening raspberries! Thanks to the beautiful weather, we have been very fortunate in getting as much produce as possible from what was planted earlier this spring.

Garden2Table would also like to announce a very special partnership with Hellmann's Canada and the "Real Food Movement". Hellmann's has chosen the Garden2Table program to help them support healthy eating and teaching children about eating REAL and LOCAL! You can check out their website at http://www.realfoodmovement.ca/latesttalk/get-informed/the-movement/ and "like" them on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/HellmannsCanada?sk=app_125046137587273
Also, if you would like to get information about  volunteering, or learn more about the Garden2Table program, please join our group on Facebook: Garden2Table Guelph!

A Creation of Feasts

On Saturday, October 1st, GCUOF and Garden2Table celebrated the organic garden through a fabulous dinner called ‘Garden to Table’. The guests enjoyed guided tours of the organic garden and a mouth watering cuisine, which featured Executive Chef Shea Robinson from Oliver & Bonacini Restaurant, Executive Chef Matthew Foote from Borealis Grille & Bar, and Executive Chef Simon Day from PJ's Restaurant in the Atrium. Utilizing the organic produce from the garden's seasonal bounty, the chefs created a delicious four course meal. Thanks to the beautiful, crisp fall weather, we were able to showcase the garden in its full glory. Thanks again to all the chefs and volunteers, who without them, we would not have been able to make this a successful event!
