Really enjoyed the workshop on bees. Very informative, our workshop leader Jonelle was friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the outdoor portion, including the honeybee hives, bumblebee identification and honey samples!

I began a mindfulness program at Kortright on Friday. The first day was an wonderful introduction into the beauty of nature and how we need to STOP and make ourselves part of it. A great reliever of stress and beginning of meditation in nature!
