T-Spoons Cookbook & Home Remedies- $6
This booklet is a result of the T-Spoons program, which was an afterschool cooking group of New Carlisle High School students mentored by seniors within the community. Senior volunteers met twice a week with the students to share their knowledge and skills to help them develop healthy eating habits, and teach them how to cook nutritious and cost-effective meals from scratch. As well, it contains local home remedies for common ailments.
Gaspesian Memories Collection- $10
The DVD collection is an interesting four-part documentary showcasing the history of the Gaspésie in a way that promotes a prominent sense of identity, pride and belonging within the local English-speaking communities in the primary industry sectors of mining, milling, fishing and agriculture.
Don’t Turn Away: Caring matters DVD-
CASA has been working with seniors for over 35 years and has partnered and served with wonderful organizations such as the Women’s Institutes, IODE, PALS, three 50+ Groups, seniors’ residences and participants at Seniors’ Wellness Centres. Several bilingual participants from the Wellness Centre attended a French play on the prevention of senior abuse and neglect. They found the information presented was very “eye-opening” and useful. This brought about a conversation regarding the fact that there are very few resources for the ESC. Due to the seriousness of this issue and the fact that many seniors within our community are unilingual, may be isolated and have limited access to services and supports, CASA and its community partners decided to develop such a tool. The videoDon’t Turn Away is designed to educate, inform and mobilize the community to take action together in order that our seniors may live healthy and safely with the dignity and respect they so rightfully deserve.
The Gaspesian Storytelling Festival 2007- $5
We have assembled a CD of the highlights of the Gaspesian Storytelling Festival of 2007. For generations, Gaspesians have struggled to make a living from the land and the sea, and to build vibrant and lively communities. Here are some of the stories that attest to their success. The stories recall times past (from hacks to old-fashioned hockey pucks) compare earlier generations’ lives with those of people today – and tell some tall tales. .
