The Farm Map Launch - a GRAND success!
On Friday May 14th, 22 Wilson Street was the place to be! Hundreds came out to celebrate the release of the new Hamilton Farm Map at Environment Hamilton's new home. As part of the May James Street North Art Crawl, crawlers: sampled local VQA wines (and Puddicombe's fruit wine) presented by the fabulous Sommelier, Karen La Vigne; everyone checked out Eat Local's first ever photo exhibit of the local farms on our map and enjoyed the sounds of musicians Dan Medakovic and Willy Mudenge. The launch was a two-in-one event as Environment Hamilton flung open ithe doors to welcome Art Crawl participants to our new home. Local visual artist, Louisa Kratka was creating a hands-on display as part of the Good Neighbour Campaign. Thank you to everyone that came out to show their support.
