Gift Certificates - TapRoot Giving.

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

This year we have decided to try something new - TapRoot Gifts (gift certificates)

We are offering gift certificates that anyone can purchase to give to a family member. The gift certificates can go toward a CSA (community shared agriculture) membership with TapRoot or towards the purchase of add-on's for members of the CSA. 

We are excited to try this. The purchase of the gift certificate is considered a share purchase and if you are new to TapRoot you will be asked to make an account. The account you create will allow us to get all of the information we need to mail you the certificates.  

Happy Giving!  Learn More: http://taprootfarms.ca/shares/register

With peace and love and delicious food in mind,

Patricia

Below are my baby nieces: Elsie and Katie. They were helping me in the office this morning - pears and a rocking chair. 



Additional Products Available Each Week

Along with your weekly CSA share box you can order add-on items. These items need to be ordered the day before your CSA delivery to arrive with your delivery that week. The items change throughout the season. 

To order Add-on items you go to the TapRoot website and log-in with your member username and password. 

You can then select items you'd like to order. You have a choice to pay online or to pay cheque or cash. 

Some of the items we currently have listed include: Cabbage, Kale, Popcorn, Honey, Leeks, Apples 

Special Feature is our TapRoot Organic Apple Juice

Case of TapRoot Apple Juice 12 bottles

Have a great day!

 

 

 

 



Councillors Role Post: resigning from committee membership

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

For immediate release

 

Greenwich, NS

 

Yesterday, July 16 I gave immediate notice to Warden Brothers, Members of the Nominating Committee and Councillors that I was resigning my membership effective immediately from all committee appointments.

 

My reason is to reduce risk to these organizations that my membership could create. The degree of personal bashing at council of councillors with different opinions to the majority appears to know no bounds. 

 

While I have resigned from all committees that I was assigned to by the nomination committee, I plan to attend the meetings as an observer.

 

Meanwhile, it is my opinion that the groups  I did serve on: Kings Transit Authority; the Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre, and the Lake Monitoring Committee; are better protected from any possible retribution by the voluntary removal of me as a member. 

 

This will create the opportunity for councillors who are ready to challenge my role and obligations as a municipal councillor to step up. 

 

I will be in my seat at regular council meetings and Committee of the Whole meetings as well as  special council meetings if I am available upon the usual short notice provided for these.  

 

As noted, I will be at the board meetings listening as an observer  (member of the public). This will help prepare me for decisions at council. 

 

I will also continue to be available to listen and help these organizations or the councillors that step into the vacancies this sad state of affairs county leadership has created.
