    Would you like to learn yet another simple stitch and glance into the history of Japanese folk-art of the 17 th century?

    The word Sashiko literally means "little stabs", a reference to the simple running stitch employed in repeating or interlocking patterns.

    Please join us for the evening of learning to use white thread creating an attractive contrast against indigo fabric using simple patterns representing things found in nature.

    Join the Community Backyard Garden Pilot Project for our end-of-season celebration. We will be wrapping up our inaugural growing and sharing season with a social gathering and potluck from 2-4pm on Saturday October 21, 2023 outside the Carp Library. Bring something to share at the potluck and come chat about how your garden grew and your dreams for next year. We will also be collecting any last vegetables you wish to donate to the Food Sharing Stands before they are packed away for winter. 

    We will be chatting about the Project's successes and ways to improve for the 2024 season. All are welcome - current project families and interested community members. We are also recruiting new members for our 2024 Organizing Committee. We are happy to chat about this if you might be interested in taking on a leadership role in the Community Backyard Garden Project next year. 

    This program will take place on the grassy area behind the library. 

    This program will be run by the Ottawa Valley Food Security Project.
