Free Herb Talk with Tamara Segal

Garden Weeds as herbs and medicine

Learn how to identify and benefit from the wild plants growing all around us. Many lawn and garden weeds are superior sources of nutrition and healing. The best part? They are freely and abundantly available to us all!

Join local Herbalist Tamara Segal of Hawthorn Herbals for a FREE talk and tour of the wild abundance growing at our feet.

Where: Hillier Hall, 18560 Loyalist Parkway
When: Saturday, May 9 from 10:30 a.m. – noon

The talk is free, but donations to support Hillier Hall are welcomed.

For more information, call (613) 476-1830 or email hhpec@kos.net

The date is set! Join us at Hillier Hall on Saturday July 11, 2015 for our annual fish fry. Once again, Hillier’s chef Jamie Kennedy is preparing a delicious fish dinner, and it is not to be missed.

We’re currently looking for volunteers to help us make this event better than ever before. Get in touch with us at hillierhall@gmail.com if you’d like to be one of our wonderful volunteers. It’s a whole lot of fun. And as a bonus, volunteers get fed for free!

 

Hello everyone,

By now I think all of you are aware the ceiling at Hillier Hall is under repair. And I think you’ve all heard Hillier Rec Committee’s vision for the Hall – to offer cultural programming in the Hall and teach healthy cooking in the kitchen and garden.

We’ve requested the County to install a theatre lighting grid and three fly hooks for a circus camp this summer run by an internationally performing company. The Hillier Rec has $6,200 in fund-raised money to kick in.

So far, our request has been turned down, and so we’ve asked the County to meet up at the Hall to discuss the technical details of the proposal and address the County’s concerns. This afternoon we were invited to meet on Wednesday.

If you could be at the meeting at Hillier Hall at 4 PM tomorrow, Wednesday 11 March, it would show the County that some people think live performances and a summer camp for kids at Hillier Hall is an idea worth listening to.

If you can’t join us this time, stay tuned for updates!
