Here is our list of gardening books we promised to share in our recent blog, “How to garden in February". These are some of our favourites for families. You might find some of these books in your community or school library. If not, ask if they can order a few of them.
If you want to find out how to improve your health and well-being, head over to Ècole Sir John Franklin School this weekend to the NWT Wellness Conference. The NWT Literacy Council will be there, along with about 400 other participants.
As a literacy council we’re interested in wellness, because the overall health literacy in Canada is low, and it’s even lower in the NWT. Almost 60% of our population has low literacy levels.
When you think of February 14th, do you think of roses, chocolates and kids giving cards to all their friends? Valentine’s Day is a great time to remind the people around us that we care for them. At the NWT Literacy Council we use this date to share the love of reading.
