Last week, I decided it was time to have a rest grown-up date with my little dude.
We skipped daycare and work, unplug a bit from our day-to-day things and enjoy a super fun event together.

It’s pretty clear for all of us that summer is our favorite season, and I’m still not over the fact this will be the last summer Nico will be my daycare baby.

Remember my old post about Bonjour, Hi This is my Montreal a few months back? Teamed with Soverdi, TD Common Ground is helping to create a Green Corridor in Montréal-North, that will link five schools with two large parks and playgrounds.

Well, we came back to explore the north side of Montreal and discovered that for two years in a row, The Green Corridor hosted their annual Harvest festival, with tons of activities for kids, adults and the entire neighborhood.

This newly greened area is providing a total new community vibe, thanks to the TD Common Ground Project, where kids are enjoying outdoor activities, including skateboard paths, playground climb walls, and plenty of gardens. One thing we loved about this festival, was seeing families come together, having a bite or resting in the park, while kids ran and ate a warm corn on the cob, like Nico did.

This year, a new community garden has been added to the venue, and the host, the Montreal-Nord neighborhood organized and installed multiple planting crates in a collaboration with l’ecole Henri-Bourassa, where you can pick up your ne herbs and vegetables, so clever right?

During summer time, Thursdays and Fridays are dedicated to free workshops about gardening including topics like the urban agriculture, organic food, friends and enemies of your garden, and more.

One of the activities was to paint this communal mural, and guys, Nico wanted to move in and stay here all day, painting all colors by himself.  We just loved this.

This happy boy! I heart you.

A flower for you, mama. Heart melted in a second
