The community dinners began in March of 2015. An idea was conceived to offer an opportunity for Lanark Highlanders to get together for dinner. The purpose of these dinners goes no further than that. Simply an opportunity to get together. Originally the dinners were set up on a three month trial basis and the over whelming success was a clear indicator that they needed to continue.
We hold Jamboree events in which we get together to preserve summer’s harvest. No experience necessary, everything is provided and we all share what we produce.
In 2020 a new kitchen was added with the help and support of some very generous donations. Although privately owned, the intention of this kitchen is to share with the community.
For some of us “TED Talks” have become a bit of an obsession. Experts in a particular field, be it art or science, social development or oceanography, give a brief (5-25 minute) talk about their passion. Their passion is contagious and opens up new horizons and ways of thinking.
Creative Workshop Wednesdays
Every Wednesday from 10 am to 3 pm we gather at 61 Owen St for a day of
creativity and fun. There is rarely anything structured, and participation in any
particular activity is totally optional. Our goal is to have an opportunity to get
together and stir up those creativity juices!
A return to good old fashioned board and card games! No pressure, no
competition, no prizes, lots of fun and laughter.
Who Wants to Knit?
Are you someone who always wanted to learn to knit but never did? Did your
mom finally throw her hands up in despair? Have no fear!
Who Am I
As women we spend a great deal of time painting a portrait of
ourselves that we believe others want to see. We also spend a lot of
time caring for the needs of others, forgetting that isn’t what defines
who we are. It is really important for all of us to take some time to
really understand who we are as people. What we stand for, what
makes us truly happy or angry. This is not a once in a lifetime thing to
do. All of us need to remember exactly who we are, and re-visit that
now and again.
Over the years Plan B has hosted a Women’s Group that has changed and evolved with the needs of the women who are a part of it. We get together to talk about many things, sometimes difficult and personal, sometimes we share a laugh. Although our topics can change we are always there to be supportive.
Harvests are bountiful. We share the crops we grow with our community to ensure everyone has access to fresh produce grown right here at home.
Good Food Box
We offered vegetable boxes that are affordable, seasonal, and as fresh and local as possible at wholesale prices.
***Our last box was distributed in July 2021***
One Billion Rising
February 14 has always been set aside for lovers but a new tradition has emerged all over the world. A tradition where women remind themselves, each other and everyone else that we need to “break the chain.”
