On Saturday night, 50 Hamiltonians gathered in the Hill St. Community Garden for The Mustard Seed’s first official community event. With gorgeous weather in our favour and July 7 being the International Day of Cooperatives, it was the perfect evening to get to know each other and to celebrate!
After some great conversation, we gave a brief presentation about the cooperative movement and The Mustard Seed’s vision and progress to date. By that time, it was getting just dark enough to watch To Make a Farm, an inspiring yet realistic documentary following the lives of 5 young Canadians who embark on making their farming dreams a reality. For the farmers in the crowd, the stories of joy and struggle rang very true!
A beautiful evening under the stars – thanks to all who came out to celebrate and give us feedback on The Mustard Seed’s future!
