Queen Gallery is celebrating its tenth Poetry Night, and the organizers want you to be a part of it. Work up some nerve, then bring your best pieces of music or works of poetry to share with the crowd. The feature performer of the evening will be Mahlikah Awe:ri, a First Nations drum-talk rapologist, poet, and activist.
Wood is a bigger part of your life than you probably know, so isn’t it time you learned a little more about forest management? Without Wood will involve an open discussion about how trees are harvested and then used—and will consider the actions being taken to safeguard the future of our forests. A panel of experts has been put together from various parts of the forest industry. It will include Jamie McRae (McRae Lumber), Al Stinson (Vice President, Canadian Institute of Forestry), Malcolm Cockwell (Manager of Forestry, Limberlost Forest), and Anne Koven (PhD Candidate, University of Toronto).
With fall looming, thoughts turn to hibernation. Don’t hole up hungry this year. Instead, join Paul Iorfida for a special course on Preserving and Pickling Vegetables. Learn about hot-water baths, salt brine, and sun-drying techniques before tasting some already-preserved veggies. Call 647-725-1822 to reserve your spot in the class.
