Life Skills: Boiling Stuff
Welcome to the first blog in our "Life Skills" series! Yet another random invention from the mind of Alanah you might say - but wait, is it random? Part of Canteen Destiny's vision is to "equip teens and launch them into the world to fulfill their destiny" (that's the Palmer Paraphrase version). Not only do we want to equip teens in the more emotional, mental, and spiritual senses (character development, leaderships skills, teamwork ability), we also want them to be prepared
A Message from Our Father's Farm - Horse Boarding!
Our Father's Farm is re-opening its barn doors for all the horse lovers out there.

Focus on Food: Chaga and Kernels
If you know anything about Our Father's Farm (the farm that houses Canteen Destiny), you'll know that their main claim to fame is Apricot Kernels, as well as Canadian grown Chaga. I get asked about these things a lot when talking about the farm (especially apricot kernels!) so I thought I'd make a quick post for all of you out there in the cyber world. I've taken the information about each from the Our Father's Farm (this is me citing them!) website, so you're getting the rea
