Inspire! Community Music Jam

Inspire! Community Music Jam
– Sunday, June 9 – 5 – 8 pm

This event was highlighted by the official release of One Last Time, a song by Julia Haggarty, co-written by Justin Zadorsky dedicated to their friend Nathan Deslippe.

We enjoyed amazing performances by  The PairsJoseph William MacKay Barker III, and Sarina Haggarty. Thank you to all of the performers and our guests!

 

 

Shenanigans included an Inspiration Corner, photo booth, raffle, snacks and drinks and lots of inspiration and laughter.

Money raised went towards the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund.

The story:

During the difficult trial period, “One Last Time” was written by Nathan’s friends Justin Zadorsky and Julia Haggarty as an impact statement covering the feelings of shock, longing, and loss of their school mate and family friend. As one of 43 impact statements, the rough demo was played through the courtroom speakers. The song was distorted but the message was clear: Nathan was a huge presence who would be missed by many.

The days following the impact statements, Julia began receiving messages requesting copies of the song. She and her co-writer quickly realized their song was helping to heal the broken hearts that were missing Nathan. With the help of the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund, an official version of the song was recorded by Julia in Nashville, TN. The song was  officially released on Friday, June 7th where it became available on all music streaming and purchasing platforms, as well on the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund website.

Nathan's Urban Farm
Launched at Growing Chefs! Ontario at The Grove at Western Fair District ! Thank you Andrew and team for opening up space for us. This is a win-win for us to be here and supporting education about growing vegetables, preparing vegetables and most especially... eating yummy vegetables!!!Growing Chefs! offers such informative, engaging content about food. Being able to reach youth to educate them about healthy foods is one of our 3 goals. This is especially exciting as Growing Chefs is running summer camps with youth. They will now be able to experience our farm first-hand and see how their food grows. The experience of eating a vegetable which has just been harvested IS AMAZING! The taste is indescribable. #sustainablefarming #sustainablefood #foodeducation #partnership #growyourownfood #foodpoverty #519london #ldnont ... See MoreSee Less

Strawberries, banana and mint leaves. Naturally delicious!Mint is being grown in a jar. It contains the roots and makes it super handy to walk out on the desk to cut leaves as I need them. A bit of nutrient solution periodically and it is happy! #foodie #foodsecurity #healthyeating #nathansurbanfarm ... See MoreSee Less
