Volunteer Callout - new and exciting opportunities!

We have some new and fun short-term projects coming up in 2017 and we need to assemble three teams to lead and help with these initiatives.  Be sure and share this 'call out' with friends and neighbours.  The more the merrier.

Travelling Out of School Care (Grades 2-5)

The Travelling OSC Program will provide children entering grades 2-5 with the opportunity to engage with the outdoors and their community. This program isn't housed in a room. It's housed in a forest, on a beach, in recreation centres and community celebrations. It's adventure and new learning opportunities every day after school.

The Haultain Commons

By Rainey Hopewell

Hello, Oaklandish neighbours. My name is Rainey Hopewell. I live with my partner, Margot Johnston, in the house tucked directly behind the Haultain Common, between Avebury & Asquith. This year, the Haultain Common will be nine years old. So surprisingly radical in its inception, the Haultain Common seems utterly common now.

City Council's growing interest in growing food on public land has piqued our curiosity to check in with ourselves about the Haultain Common, and reap the harvest of our learning about growing food on public land.
