Do you know someone or an organization making a difference in the community? I'd love to hear about it. Maybe I can help shine a light on them. Send me anemail.
In the Fall of 2015, I photographed the launch of the North Grove (then known as the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre). Once a grocery story space, they'd transformed it into an open-concept, commercial kitchen and dining room. With its high ceilings and large windows, it felt modern, bright and welcoming.They prepared meals for the community, held cooking classes, helped young families with childcare, offering programs, outreach and much more. It has become the pride of the community, turning a parking lot into an urban farm, expanding their programs, resources, classes and services and gathering a large base of volunteers. Have a look and visit their website for more up-to-date information.
This is a place that makes you feel hopeful for the future.
