This week’s guest (Sept 11) is Jeanette Sheehy from Victoria’s LifeCycles Project. Sheehy will explain LifeCycle’s community-health initiative that connects people with their local food and the land it comes from.

Larry Howe of the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. led a talk called “Getting to know dementia” on Sept. 2.

The session is free and is followed by complimentary tea, coffee and snacks.

The sessions are not limited to Gordon Head residents, and are open to interested parties throughout the region.
