Toronto Beach Rotary President Judy Orr recently presented a cheque for $1000 to Marie Perrotta of the Pegasus Community Project. The funds will be used to help support the project's day programs for adults who have developmental disabilities.

Every Tuesday, a youth group from Woodgreen Community Services visits the Beach Community Edible Garden to learn practical techniques used in growing food.
 
The youth are taking part in an immigrant settlement program; they come from countries like Jamaica and Bangladesh, so some of the food they are learning to seed and grow in their own eavestrough planters – things like oak-leaf lettuce, New Zealand spinach, and several herbs – is completely new to them.
 
As garden manager Alex Rochon-Terrry describes, youth become acquainted with food that grows well in Toronto's climate. They discuss the health benefits of these crops and how to cook them, which not only builds their English language skills, but also their food literacy!
 
 
 
TD Canada Trust is once again supporting our club's focus on youth by sponsoring our activities at the Beach Community Edible Garden.
 
Shown here: TD Manager Kevin Steer presents a cheque for $1000 to Toronto Beach Rotary President Judy Orr and Past-President Barry Webster at the TD Queen & Lee branch on Sunday, July 19, 2015.
 
Thank you, TD, for helping us make a difference in our community, and beyond!

The Community Edible Garden, which is sponsored by Toronto Beach Rotary, celebrated Canada Day 2015 with gardening activities for kids!
 
Alex Rochon-Terry, the Urban Park Ranger who has spearheaded the garden project, said: “So much energy at the garden – lots of watering was done by kids, planting, seeding, water colouring”.
 
The children also made seed balls. Alex explained that these are “balls of clay, compost and veggie seeds that kids throw into a park or their garden – the idea is that they sprout within the ball”.
 
We look forward to many opportunities this season for children and their families to get their hands dirty and learn more about where healthy food comes from.
 
 
 
 

Toronto Beach Rotary is sponsoring self defence courses for girls, a program run by Community Centre 55.

The courses have proved popular for many ages, with some girls learning effective defence skills along side their mothers.

We are proud to be a part of helping women and young girls feel safe and more confident about managing potentially threatening situations.

For our second year in a row, Toronto Beach Rotary cooked up turkey supper for 60+ to support the Out of the Cold program.

Every Monday night at St. Aidan’s Church in the Beach, food, fellowship and shelter are provided to members of our community who need help with warm meals and/or a place to sleep.

Rotary is honoured to help out in the kitchen! The menu included baked turkey and ham, gravy, potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, salad, rolls and apple crisp for dessert.

The Remarkable Bean also provided cinnamon buns right out of the oven, and Cobbs provided three kinds of fruit scones. Several people came back for seconds of those yummy desserts stashed more into their knapsacks.

One of the many wonderful compliments we received was that the meal reminded people of "being at home", which inspires us to re-create the same comforting food next year when we have the opportunity again to support Out of the Cold again.
