Edwin Binney’s Community Garden grand opening garden party

By Lindsay Advocate

United Way City of Kawartha Lakes will be hosting a grand-unveiling and fundraising event to celebrate the opening of Edwin Binney’s Community Garden on Crayola Canada’s Property. This will be the largest community garden project that United Way CKL has ever made, and we could not have done it without our amazing community partners.

Guests are invited June 8 to attend the cocktail and speeches portion of the event at Fleming College’s Auks Lodge from 1-3 pm, where special guests from Crayola Canada, Fleming College and United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes will speak about the creation of this innovative Food Security venture.

After speeches, guests will be invited to peruse the community tables, purchase Edwin Binney’s Community Garden merchandise, indulge in hors d’oeuvres and enjoy the cash bar. Transportation will then be provided to Edwin Binney’s Community Garden (on Crayola Canada’s Property, just two short blocks away) for the ribbon cutting portion of the event, weather permitting.

Upon arrival at 3 pm, guests will convene to witness the grand unveiling of the Days Inn and Suites Bee Hotel and the Mural created through the Youth Mural Competition. Prizes for the Mural Competition will be awarded, then attendees will be invited to explore the gardens. Transportation will be provided back to Fleming College’s Auks Lodge at 4 pm.

United Way is also excited to celebrate the success of our most recent fundraising campaign at this event. Tickets for the event are now on sale at the United Way office. The tickets are sold at $25 for adults and $20 for students and seniors. For more information please call 705-878-5081 or visit the website at http://ckl-unitedway.ca/edwin-binney-community-garden/
