IN THE COMING WEEKS 

1.  The Korean Cultural Centre proudly presents Jeong Ga Ak Hoe Nonilda - Tuesday, December 4 at 7 pm at the Spatz Theatre, 1855 Trollope Street, Halifax.  A Korean traditional music performance.  Jeong Ga Ak Hoe is a professional music group that specializes in Korean traditional genres of Gagok, Julpungryu and Pansori.  NONILDA, which means to "casually wander about," will take audiences on a playful journey from musical forms that anchor profoundly to the core roots of tradition to music with modernized interpretations and sounds.  Ultimately, Jeong Ga Ak Hoe offers a musical experience that speaks to both the 'past' and the 'present.' RSVP is mandatory and can be done online at http://canada.korean-culture.org

World Soil Day is December 5

Soil gives life and supports livelihoods around the world. In Badin, Pakistan, Rabia's life depends on access to rich, fertile soil - she needs it to grow the crops she sells each week at the market. But an especially dry summer has led to severe water shortages in her village. Rabia's soil was too arid to yield the produce she needs. With support from PWS&D and Canadian Foodgrains Bank, Rabia has learned to adopt agricultural practices that use less water. She also received seeds to grow crops that can survive extended dry periods. "This is highly beneficial for farmers like me, who reside in water-scarce areas," shares Rabia.
