    January Green Drinks

    RSVP here!

    In short, cycling is simply the best way to get around! It is efficient, environmentally sustainable, and it saves money. Studies have shown that it leads to healthier, more prosperous communities.

    London Cycle Link is a member-supported, not-for-profit organization dedicated to making our city a place where citizens can easily choose cycling as their preferred mode of daily transportation.

    Dan Hall, Executive Director for London Cycle Link will share an update on what’s being done to improve cycling infrastructure, and thereby also the quantity and demographic of Londoners cycling. Come learn how you can get involved!

    Green Drinks is an organic, self-organising network of people interested in talking about environmentally related topics. We hope you can join us to chat with like-minded neighbours, learn more about such an incredible local environmental organization, and connect with other people interested in growing a healthier, more sustainable city!

    Door Prize & Raffle:
    Because we like to give you the chance to win free (local, green, and fun) stuff, we will be doing a door prize & raffle again! Each ticket purchase will automatically enter your name into a draw for a chance to win our door prizes. And because we love active transportation SO much, we are giving an additional door prize ticket to all attendees that have cycled to the venue. Our raffle prizes are kindly donated by businesses that are local, sustainable, and environmentally-conscious - stay tuned for announcements. Raffle tickets are 1 for $3, 2 for $5, and 5 for $10 (cash only), and proceeds will go to London Environmental Network to support our ever-growing work for London's environmental sector.

    Getting There:
    Like every Green Drinks, we encourage attendees to use active transportation. Plan your route to walk, bike, bus or if you can't do those try to carpool!

    Growing Chefs Headquarters in London, Ontario, Canada

    Etiquette For Kids by Growing Chefs! Ontario

    At Growing Chefs! we understand how important proper manners are and we want to share our knowledge with our young neighbours. Join us at our headquarters to build a solid foundation for proper etiquette and to learn exciting new social skills that will be sure to get you a spot at the "adult" table!

    Our children's etiquette class is designed in a way that will empower children and help them develop strong skills to transform them into tomorrow's leaders. This two class session will be entertaining and interactive; it includes a 30-minute etiquette lesson, followed by a Chef prepared meal to practise what was discussed.

    The learning outcome for this class is that participants (aged 7 - 13) will gain a deeper understanding of manners vs. etiquette; such as how to conduct themselves at the dining table, common dining mistakes and the different types of dining styles.

    Please note that children must register for and attend both classes to complete this course. Dates will fall on two consecutive Tuesdays in February: 4th & 11th. Please note this class is for children ages 7 - 13 only.

    Also: *Any dietary restrictions will be met, AS LONG AS this information is sent to Alyssa at least 1 week prior to the class. 

    Our washrooms are located on the second floor or our historic old home/venue, accessed only via stairs, therefore we cannot consider ourselves a fully accessible space.
