Next Meeting

Thursday, January 10, 2018

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Ongwanada Resource Centre, 191 Portsmouth Avenue

Speaker:  Emily Dowling


Tn response to the market for locally and organic-grown produce and her own desire to contribute to the community, and to steward the land and preserve the family farm, Emily Dowling began her business Root Radical. She grows food for local people using the Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) model. In her presentation, she will describe the aims and benefits of CSA, historical aspects and trends, and how to become involved either as a provider or as a customer.


Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from September to June at 7:30 p.m. They usually take place at

Ongwanada Resource Centre. The entrance to Ongwanada is on Portsmouth Ave, just south of Johnson St. It is immediately past the Health Unit on the left when going south. Park at the end of the driveway. The building is forward from the end of the drive. [There is more parking to the left.]

There are bus stops on Portsmouth near Ongwanada for evening route E12.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome. There is no charge for members of the Kingston Horticultural Society or other garden club. For others, entry is $3.00. KHS and garden club members should please show their membership card when coming to meetings.
