We thank all of the organizations below for their wonderful support.
We now have a vegetable and fruit stand situated on Elk Lake Road. We would send our appreciation to Mr Gordon Nikel, owner of Cannors Nursery, for his contribution in purchasing the material required to build the kiosk and as well allowing us to market our produce at his location.
St. Michaels School
We at Local Yokels Society would like to extend our thanks to St Michaels School for their time and effort that they spent in our garden last spring and last fall. It was also appreciated by the groups of children that were involved with our summer programs. It is wonderful that St Michaels School has students that are involved with local community projects. A special thanks to Kevin Cook, Program Director at St Michaels School.
And thank you for the cash donation to our society which was truly appreciated.
Dan Jason has been promoting local organic farming for over twenty years and has been actively involved in promoting seed bank awareness in our communities. The Cultivating Local Yokels Society would like to thank him for his generous seed contributions and support.
A Big Thank You to Pearson College
We would like to acknowledge the efforts of the group of students that attend Pearson College. Evgerina, Evelina and Markvard organized some volunteers from Pearson college to help at a picnic that we held on the 18th of October, 2008. The garden picnic was an annual event that we have for youth and adults with disabilities. The students were TERRIFIC. They were very helpful and caring. They also have volunteered in our organic garden, we enjoyed their laughter,and enthusiasm. They helped us with many projects. We appreciate your cooperation with this fantastic community effort and again give thanks to these wonderful students, and future leaders.
