Let’s Learn Together Market Fair

Ready Niagara?

Are you looking to learn how to Grow Your Own Food? Or how about Beekeeping, do you want to learn more? Solar Energy, Wind Power… Can we figure out together what the game plan is? Waste Management, Water Conservation, let’s look at how things currently work right here in Niagara.

Let’s ask the experts.

Then maybe we can collectively improve upon each system, one step at a time. And with everyone’s help.

And as for our kids, let’s put on an event that’s fun for them, and informative at the same time!

We’ve gone to our community leaders and asked them to come teach us what it is they know. We’ve gone to our community partners and asked them to join us for a day of fun. We’ve got our government, our instituions, our non profits, and our social enterprises, all ready to go.

Let’s join forces. Let’s ask some questions.

Let’s Learn Together.

Event Details:

We have some incredible people collaborating and co-hosting this event. Thank you so far to Brock University, Niagara College, Healthy Kids Niagara, Textile Waste Diversion, Links for Greener Learning and Social Enterprise Niagara. The people we have connected with all want this too. We can share what we know with each other.

And it is FREE.

The organizations will cover the costs. In fact, the money we do make on this day will go toward our Niagara Wide Seed Library.

There’s reasons to unite like this.

Collectively, each co-host will have a number of tables at this event, which each represent our objectives. We will show you clearly who we are and what we are attmepting to do, symbolically, through our partnerships and topics of choice.

Each organization has an opportunity to host a workshop, as well as represent themselves at a table/booth.

Each of these tables will be colour coded, as to clearly identify which of the co-hosts the business/organization is representing.

For example, Niagara Farm Project’s colour is Yellow. The tables you will see colour coded to represent our objectives will be things like, permaculture workshops, food secuirty workshops, cooking workshops, and our tables will be things like homemade soaps and candles, and knitted items. All the things that you will see are meant to represent one of our main initiatives which is just simply “homesteading”.

Each of our Niagara institutions here can easily do the same. They actually want you all to know what they are good at. Come see.

Come also see what it means to be a social enterprise. Social Enterprise Niagara helps us all understand more clearly how our current system functions, verses how it could if we reconsidered our values, and our ethics. Take a walk around their section, and see who they have representing their objectives…

And last but certainly not least,

Can we all have some fun??

This event is centred around our kids. Niagara let’s enjoy ourselves. This isn’t about bouncie castles or candy, this is about community. Healthy Kids Niagara exists to ensure we get this right. Let’s see what it is that our kids can do yes, but let’s hear from them, what’s fun, what’s interesting to a 6 year old, a 9 year old, a 13 year old… Let’s make some art, let’s carve some pumpkins, let’s enjoy this day together.

We can all learn from each other.
