Learn Something New on the Weekend

Thursday, Aug 29, 2019 at 8:46am

For anyone who loves learning, but may not have a lot of extra time during their busy week, our Community Classroom offers weekend courses too.

Starting in September, you can make your own Mandala, learn about the women of rock and roll, take poetry classes with Winnipeg’s very own Poet Laureate, discover the benefits of Indian spices, or indulge your inner foodie with a decadent chocolate or wine and cheese tasting (or both!).

Keep reading for a list of weekend classes coming up in fall 2019!

Can We Be Busy Without Losing Our Minds?

Thursday, Aug 22, 2019 at 3:00pm

Coming home from vacation, heading back to work, planning for the holidays ... for better or worse, everything seems to intensify come September. To-do lists, agendas and calendars fill up, and there is a lot of pressure to balance all of life’s commitments — plus hopefully find time for your own wellbeing. It’s important to be mindful of your mental health throughout the year, but if you’re interested in checking in before the busy season picks up, our Community Classroom is offering two classes that look at ways to cope with stress, pressure and anxiety. 

On September 12, Rick Thurmeier and the Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba (ADAM) will be teaching an afternoon session on the nature of anxiety that will explore strategies for improving control over significant anxieties and worries. The following week, Karen Toole will be starting a three session course examining the pressures we might feel to “be normal” or “measure up,” as well as looking at ways we can use that pressure to gain understanding and strength.

Our Natural, Edible World

Wednesday, Aug 14, 2019 at 3:51pm

The days might be getting shorter and even a bit cooler as we head towards autumn, but that doesn’t mean the fascination of the natural world is behind us for the season, even if we do start spending a bit more time indoors. Autumn is a great time to learn about the variety of useful, edible plants you can find in your own backyard. Did you know that stinging nettle is high in calcium? Or that different parts of the dandelion can be used as beverages, appetizers, side dishes and desserts? Would you like to learn how to harvest acorns and prepare them as food and/or medicine?

The Community Classroom is lucky enough to have Laura Reeves, botanist and wild food aficionado, teaching two classes this September: Your Wild, Edible Backyard and All About Acorns. Both of these classes will include samples of these wild plants and nuts - so make sure to bring a mug, plate and fork to class with you.
