We’re hiring!

We are sad to say farewell to the wonderful Jessie Forman as she returns to teaching full time, but also thrilled for her as she begins her new adventure (and happy for the children who get to have her as their teacher, and the people who get to have her as a colleague). That also means that we are looking for a new Art Program Director! See more here to join our team! 

Also, if you love to cook, are under 30 and have a passion for community outreach and food security (with a post secondary degree), and an interest in cooking for and with local community, artists, and others, click here for a fabulous internship!


Join us on September 11 for a beautiful house concert from CBC favourite, Ben Kunder!

Kunder’s dazzling sophomore album “Better Human”, is set for release on Friday, June 29, and is poised to dominate 2018. Find out more.  . See Ben perform  live in CBC q studio with Carleigh Aikins

Volunteer update!

We are so incredibly fortunate to have dedicated volunteers who round out our staff, and this summer has been no exception!

From short term visitors gardening, cooking and laying dance floors like Raul and Victoria from Spain and Maddy from Kitchener, to longer term volunteers such as Anna from Germany, and local gardening wonder Elisha, to our full summer volunteer Maya Schwarz, a German art therapist who has been at camp all summer, to our star returner, Julien, who fundraised for and is building a beautiful eco-cabin here for the use of the centre and for education on the coexistence of art and ecology. We are always looking for youth and adult volunteers who want to be part of our community, whether for an afternoon or for a few months!
