I was taken aback last month when I was told I would be awarded by the Lauriston and Thompson Community 4H club. .
I asked the founder and leader of said club, Mr Christie... Why did you pick me... He said.. I didn't.. I asked who did.. He said the children.. I asked did you influence them?? Did you tell them to pick me?
He said No Ronalda, they chose you themselves. .
I was shocked! I wasn't aware sharing the knowledge of our local homegrown food I've gained with the children age ranging from at least 6yrs to 22yrs would have such an impact. .
As I walked the red carpet to the biggest cheers from the children, I was honoured and floored and finally believed Mr. Shian Christie didn't choose. .
As I share these precious moments I could capture of the 20th Anniversary of the Lauriston and Thompson Community 4H club celebration, I leave you with a few words... "Cast your seeds on fertile ground"
