    Yorklands Hub Talk and Tour
  • Norah Chalnor
  • Join activist Norah Chalnor for a presentation about the innovative efforts to preserve the Yorklands Hub followed by carpooling out to the near-by site for a guided tour of the location. A group of hard-working local citizens are striving to turn the former penitentiary grounds into an ecology centre, preserving the historic parkland with its meadows, streams, stone walls, waterfalls, ponds and trees.  It beautifully demonstrates building for sustainable environments and more resilient urban communities.  The tour will be approximately 1 km with a mild uphill grade in places on trails that are navigable for strollers and electric scooters.  Come see what the excitement is all about!

  • Location: Meet at UCG

    Field Trip to Visit Our Sibling Congregation Grand River Unitarians
  • Here is a chance to strengthen our bridge with the Grand River Congregation and take in a great service at the same time.  We will meet up at UCG to car pool over.  The service is “Poor and Rich/ Rich and Poor” led by service leader Colin Read based on a sermon by Rev. Vail Weller.  This sermon is an inspiration to develop gratitude for what we have and a reminder of inequity.  

  • Location: Meet at UCG at 9:30

    Potluck Picnic at Riverside Park
  • There will be food, music, games and good company.  Come join in for some lighthearted community time together.  If convenient, you are encouraged to bring a dish to share(but if that doesn’t work for you, do come anyway).  Please bring your own plate, cup and cutleryas these will not be provided.  You might also want to pack along a lawn chair and this would be the perfect time to dust off that croquet set or dig the bocce balls out of that cupboard!

( 10:30am - 11:30am )

    Talk and Discussion about Land Use in Canada
  • Brian Hawker
  • What’s the difference between thinking of land as real estate and land as a life support system? How does land as a material object have a non-material impact on our psychology? Can a landscape overlap with our soulscape?  While land can be labelled, consensus on its definitionis elusive. This talk explores the orthodoxy that we all sprung from the earth, that it is the ecology that supports human activity and that there is much to be learned from cultures that value land as a gift to be respected and shared.  If you have an iPhone, bring it along to learn a cool land-based activity.
