Resilience! Determination! Strength! These words describe all of you! We couldn't be more proud of all the students and families we see for completing such a challenging school year. You were all asked to "hang in there" and "go with the flow", and manage your lives with little social supports. You all deserve a reward for finding your super powers and managing as best you could. You did it!!

⭐️PROUD PARTNERSHIP ALERT⭐️⁣

Our first in person market of the year will be here soon enough and I honestly cannot wait! I am thrilled to announce that we have partnered with one incredible organization in our community for this event Fiddlehead Care Farm

Fiddlehead Care Farm is a non-profit, fully accessible, therapeutic care farm for children, youth and young adults with developmental, physical and behavioural needs in a caring, supportive environment.⁣

From the outside, Fiddlehead Care Farm (FCF) may look like a traditional, run-of-the-mill working farm. But trust them, their farm is far from ordinary. Fiddlehead is a small farm with big offerings.⁣

Situated in beautiful Dufferin County, Fiddlehead is fully accessible, integrated, non-clinical, natural environment that allows their clients to explore without boundaries and experience true freedom. Using a UK-based care farming model, they provide vulnerable people the opportunity to learn, build and grow through a range of hands-on farming activities and therapies!⁣

With their treatments, there's no "one-size-fits-all" approach. The staff at Fiddlehead implement interventions that are client-and family-centred, strength focused, goal directed and evidence-based, all while harnessing the calming and healing power of nature exploration and exposure. Their services are vast and can be tailored to the individual needs of each client and their family. They use nature as their therapy partner and treatment method, and also have the distinct privilege of having a therapy mini-pig onsite as part of our team.⁣

Fiddlehead Care Farm will be set up at the entrance of our market. Our markets are free admission however if you are able we would love your help supporting this incredible organization. ⁣
