Our goal is to support the Orillia Food Council in its mandate to “Enhance local food knowledge and food literacy in the  community."

To that end, we have several garden plots around St. Paul's Centre, and encourage local families to come and pick the vegetables that are grown here, as they ripen. Watch this space to see how we grow St. Paul's Community Garden, in its scope and mandate! LIKE us on Facebook to see more!

November 19: Please join us after worship on Sunday November 19 as we plant daffodil bulbs in our planters around the church, in memory of David Horn. These bulbs are from David's garden, and this was his wish.

October 5: Squash stories from the community are still coming in and are full of fun. It seems the squirrels and groundhogs in Orillia have eaten well too. The best news of all is that our Gete Okosomin Squash matured and we will have seeds for next year. To learn more about this indigenous GIANT Squash click here . Join us next year for our guerrilla squash adventures.

BIG thank you to everyone for coming out to our Harvest Lunch!  The squash soup was delicious, kale chips the perfect appetizer, spaghetti sauce with zip - accompanied by a lots of salad greens... and a tasty apple crumble for dessert. 

The children and families worked hard in the kitchen to make this all possible. 

If you weren't able to make it, hopefully we will see you next year!
