"Tea N Tales which takes place at Riverside Park each Friday during the summer months is an unrivalled success of volunteerism and community. Each week at the Guelph Enabling Garden, different storytellers spin yarns which are listened to by 100 or more attendees of all ages - children with parents, parents with grandparents, grandparents with grandchildren. This use of the gardens is wonderfully inspiring, for many people who come to be healed of whatever ails them: loneliness, aches and pains, something missing from their lives - maybe just a need to be a part of a company of listeners enjoying a fine park, fine weather and community. Thank you to all the volunteers who understand that stories unify us and when we are in need, heal us."
