Canadian Foodgrains Bank Project: Although we are still challenged with the COVID-19 and the end is not yet in sight, we feel we can at least start growing our pumpkins while exercising social distancing. Our hope is that by October we will be able to gather as we did last year to celebrate another growing season.Members of Rockwood, Stone and our community who are interested in participating in the Pumpkin Growing Challenge please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org indicate whether you wish us to provide seed. If you have any questions, email me or call 519-841-4170.
