Canada Day in rural Albert County, NB, is a time to celebrate. Check out some or all the events on July 1st, 2016.
With spring finally here, many of us have been itching to get outside and gardening in the nice fresh air. Well, wait no more, because there is going to be a NEW Community Garden opening this week, right here in Riverside Albert! Foods of the Fundy Valley, Forest Dale Home and the Shepody Food Bank have all partnered to build our very own shared garden.
Forest Dale has graciously provided the space, water and other support for the garden and will have one of the plots to grow food for the home and as an outdoor activity space for the seniors, staff, volunteers, and family who come to visit their loved ones. The Shepody Food Bank generously helped by writing a successful grant to fund the building of the garden and will also have their own plot for anyone in the community to come and care for, and eat freely from, bringing any extra produce back to the Food Bank for the families and other people that they serve. Foods of the Fundy Valley is providing Elizabeth Gorman’s Program Coordinator time to organize the build and the running of the garden this season.
Each plot will measure approximately 10ft x 10ft. Out of these 10 plots, there will be 8 available for anyone who would like to rent one for the year. Our vision for the garden is for it to be a space where people can have fun gardening together - with the soil already tilled and ready to go, tools provided, and workshops throughout the summer and fall season. We also see it as becoming a beautiful green resting and gathering space for anyone who would like to just simply spend time in the garden relaxing, maybe taking a break from work or life in general, and as a space for others to host events and gather.
If you or someone you know is interested in signing up for a plot, please visit or call Mindy Holmstrom at the Forest Dale Nursing Home, 882-3015 or contact Elizabeth at email@example.com, or at 875-5841. The only cost is a yearly fee of 15$ (or pay what you can) to help cover future costs for soil amendments, etc., in 2017.

As part of their commitment to expand Riverside Consolidated as the center of the community, Chipoudy Communities Revitalization Committee is applying for approval of a preschool in the building. They strongly believe that this is really the best opportunity for sustaining our school and using the space wisely.
There are rules to follow to become a licensed childcare center. Many of these rules necessarily involve a cost in order to comply. For example, hiring a teacher who has either a BEd or ECE certification. We also will comply with using the NB Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care. Certain materials to use with the children; an assortment of age appropriate toys and learning games; consumable items for art,and experimentation – all of these and more will require funding.
In order for them to proceed, it is very important that they have accurate numbers of how many parents of 3 and 4 year olds, would use a preschool, so we need some information from you!
