I just heard from a Neighbourhood Life participant how they love seeing their neighbourhood relationships flourish. This past week they heard about the many apples that fall to the ground and are not used, and brought it up in a discussion with their neighbour. The neighbour admitted that she would not now what to do with all their apples either, which is where the apples sauce lessons began. And then the variations of apple pie. The discussion continued over time, revealing the truth of how so many need someone to show them how to make jam, or sauce or…… It’s not enough to think that people will look to YouTube. Its the relationship and the modelling that shows how it can be simple and fun….and rewarding, not to mention a good use of apples. And its a good opportunity for neighbours to connect. These particular neighbours went on to say that they now have the keys to his truck in case something happens, and they check on each others homes while the other is on vacation. Recognize the trust? Feel the love?
