Cool Aid Society cleans up Woodwynn Farms

Casual labour pool helps to clear debris

Cool Aid Society’s Community Casual Labour Pool is set to clean up Woodwynn Farms.

“This is especially meaningful for our workers,” said Cool Aid Community Casual Labour Pool coordinator Wendy Stone in a press release, “some of whom have had their own experiences with addictions and recovery. They are delighted to have the opportunity to help prepare a farm where more people can recover from their addictions.”

As well as general labour, the Labour Pool has many skilled and ticketed individuals ready to work in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, etc.
