Thank you to everyone who made #Gardendayscanada for the United Way-CKL such a huge success!
United Way for the CKL had it's Grand Opening event on June 17, 2016, from 2 to 4pm at both of our Community Garden locations. 50 Mary St. W., and the New Community Garden, Durham St. E (Duke and Durham).
We held it on June 17 to coincide with #GardenDaysCanada. The Fleming Community Garden has agreed to join us in our celebrations and they will be hosting an open house at the same time. The goal is to raise awareness first and foremost about our Gardens and the New Intergenerational program we are operating this year.

The United Way along with many non-profit agencies, businesses and government have made a measurable difference in the City of Kawartha Lakes. Our donors and volunteers are critical to the success of our community. The agencies we support financially, and through collaborations, are committed to the people who live here. Together, we offer help and hope. Collective caring defines this community as one where we want to raise families, retire and work.
By bringing citizens from all parts of our community to identify opportunities for sustainable growth and to address critical challenges, we ensure that the donations we receive go where they are needed the most... and where they will have the greatest impact.
