Grey Bruce, speaking on “Where to Find Services in Grey Bruce”.

The day will also include updates from the Food Security Action Group, discussion sessions, a presentation by the Bruce Botanical Food Gardens, as well as a tour of the Fresh Roots Community Gardens.

Lunch will be provided by Fresh Roots, a new cafe and catering business at CMHA Grey Bruce.

Join in for a day of vibrant discussion, inspiring presentations and good food.
