We had our first DIY Repair Hub tonight after the market closed. Sheila had made supper and I We are I realized and then said “this is the dream”. I didn’t explain what I meant though. The dream is to have a place that is alive with people. Where we are building a community through nourishing food and mindful activities like the DIY Repair Hub. This place is growing…. We just recently hired on some new help, my mom Debora and Jarryth and they are so needed! I am really loving watching them put their individual talents to work.
We are about to move into a bigger space next door, for December 1st and it’s feeling like we can actually do this even though it’s scary and risky. For now, we are just squeaking by with what’s coming in for business but that’s amazing for the first 6 months! There’s been enough sales to restock and keep the lights on. 🤣
And everyday I gain more experience on how to run a business. I had zero before this. It was born naturally out of a desire to access good food and connect with people. And the connections just keep growing. I’m so humbled and honoured to be given this opportunity.
With us moving, that means we have 2 spaces for new businesses as well as an office and other various places to squeeze people in.
The new market will have a new vendor that is renting her own shelf space from us and many of you will love her products! I’ll give you a hint and tell you it’s in line with a very popular diet 😉 and she’s also well loved in Moose Jaw.
I’m opening up my ideas about how this will shape up and I’m realizing that the wandering market will be a small part of the entire thing. It’s going to be a community centre that is based around food education so that we can get back to our roots. So we can get back to cooking and enjoying it like the cultures we come from. Somewhere back in your history there’s your family that had tradition around food and it brought them together. Maybe you still have it or just pieces of it.
Well, it felt so good to get together tonight with 10 other people and nail out some projects in a relaxing atmosphere. Our next meeting is Dec 15 at 6 pm and it’s completely free. Just bring your project(s) and yourself!
PS: I have zero energy for editing so enjoy as it is! 🤣
That’s me right after Michael Slid the trailer out like a baby being born with no millimetres the spare. It felt supernatural as it didn’t look like it was going to fit! 😬 he had just said to me “we might not be going to saskatoon” and I asked my dad for help and POP out come the trailer with zero damage to trailer or overhead door! Thanks, Dad.
I got to fix this book with Keri from Green Sister Gardens and it looks just as good as new! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣
