Opening Night Reception

If you had eggs for breakfast, did you have to take a boat or hike to get them?
If you had cheese or milk with your omelette,  where did they come from?
If you served meat for dinner – did you raise it?

Imagine being in the middle of a tropical forest, with little or no resources, not able to read or write or know how to find eggs, milk or meat?

Come and hear the meaning of a “ hand-up” versus a “hand-out” and see how communities share what resources, knowledge and experience with others.

Ben Cullen, one of our inspiring youth along with his dad, Mark Cullen, has some amazing stories about taking a boat to get to a piece of land where he and other volunteers teach families to grow, raise and share their own food.

Talk: “Lessons on sustainable best practices and stories from SHARE Agriculture Foundation’s work in South and Central America”

Please join us to celebrate the opening of our 19th award-winning show at our gorgeous venue at the new Trades and  Technology Building at Fleming College.

Hosted and run by the volunteers of the Peterborough Horticultural Society, our show is a fund-raising charity and all our profits go to scholarships & grants for students studying horticulture and the environment as well as our community gardens & beautification projects.

We are passionate about gardening and encourage you to show your support and share with us some light refreshments, a cash bar, guided tours of the “Learning Cube” (not open to the public) and hear Ben Cullen share his own passion for gardening with the rest of the world.
