Life Long Learning

What is life long learning?

Lifelong learning is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated" pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, as well as competitiveness and employability.

What is a community adult learning program?

I often try to let others know what I do but coming up with some great explanation...here is a wonderful video to show you what the community adult learning program (CALP) is all about!

When I am asked what I do, I answer "I coordinate programs geared toward adult learners.  Everything from basic reading and writing all the way up to post-secondary planning and programs."  That is a lot to take in!  That is a lot to do. 

Every person that walks through our door has a different story, a different skill set and is on a different learning path.  

Here is where the planning happens.  Here is my support team and a quick run down of the outcomes we are trying to achieve in order to help the adult learners in our communities succeed.

Getting Ready for Back to School

There’s soccer practice and music lessons. You stayed late to finish a project at work. And everybody’s hungry. How do you manage to prepare nutritious and healthy meals for your family? Check out great tips to help keep your family organized for back to school.

There’s soccer practice and music lessons. You stayed late to finish a project at work. And everybody’s hungry. How do you manage to prepare nutritious and healthy meals for your family?

“I start Saturday by looking at the week’s schedule,” said Co-op employee Debbie Unick. “I determine how much time I have to prepare a meal each night, who will be home and who can help in the kitchen.”

With two teenaged boys, Debbie has two large calendars in the kitchen – one for activities and one for meals. She has a list of standard recipes, but seeks inspiration from flyers and family members. After matching meals to fit their schedules, she makes her grocery list to ensure she has the ingredients she needs.

“If you do nothing else but this step, I guarantee it will be easier,” she said. “I hated coming home, walking in the door and having that dreaded ‘what’s for supper’ feeling and then looking in the fridge to see what I could make in 30 minutes.”

Debbie completes most meal preparation on Sunday. She chops vegetables en masse so only assembly is required for most parts of meals during the week. She also prepares larger meals on the weekend like turkey or lasagna that can be used as part of another meal – turkey for sandwiches, soup or pot pie – or simply reheated at a later date.

Debbie's Tips:

Make a list with your family’s favourite foods, frozen meals and slow cooker meals. When you’re in a slump, you’ll have something to refer to.

Invest in labels to identify the containers needed to assemble daily meals.

Use a separate bowl for waste/compost when prepping meals to prevent trips to the garbage and help with cleanup.

Not as organized as Debbie? That’s OK. Every family has different schedules and needs. Find something that works for you.

Start small and simple. Use the following tips to help break those ‘I’m hungry’ and ‘What’s for supper?’ statements.

Meal Planning:

Discover new recipes online as well as in flyers, magazines and cookbooks. Give it a rating.

Host a theme night once a month to experience flavours from around the world.

Organize Fun Friday with meals that have a playful component – building, dipping and rolling.

Make a meal plan based on cooking two or three ‘new’ meals per week, using leftovers in a new way.

Involve the whole family in meal planning, mixing individual favourites and new food experiences.

Cook breakfast for supper. Eggs are a quick and nutritious protein and form the base for breakfast sandwiches, omelets and scramblers.

Meal Preparation:

Precut and package vegetables to use in meals throughout the week.

Pick one day to prep meals for the entire week.

Cook your protein in advance if possible.

Cooked chicken breast can be reheated for lunches or made into chicken salad for sandwiches.

Boil a dozen eggs for a quick breakfast or salad topper.

Tonight’s dinner is tomorrow’s lunch - prep extra veggies for a mason jar salad.

Save time by preparing and freezing ingredients once a month, thawing in the refrigerater the night before. Great for stir-fry or crockpot meals.

Cheat on your homemade meals, not everything has to be from scratch. It’s okay to buy meal components – flatbreads, sauces and even burgers – to save time.

Snacks to Go:

Bake a large batch of muffins and freeze. Defrost and serve as needed.

Slice and freeze fruit in single serve packs. Combine fruit, yogurt and juice or milk in the blender for a quick smoothie.

Create individual servings of fruit, vegetables, nuts or trail mix for a quick snack.

Recycling: Doing our Part

Canadians drank 2.4 billion litres of bottled water in 2014. That’s not only a lot of water, that’s a lot of plastic bottles. Fortunately, these bottles can be recycled into building materials, electronics, textiles or even – no surprise – new water bottles.

The blue-tinted bottles – recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) to be specific – are produced and filled in Western Canada. Recycled bottles are sorted by colour, shredded into flakes to create resins which are then used to create new bottles.

According to the National Association of PET Container Resources (NAPCOR), recycling this plastic conserves raw materials and uses 84% less energy, resulting in 71% lower greenhouse gas emissions. That’s enough to power 300 households for a year and to take 240 cars off the road for every 1,000 tons of PET recycled instead of landfilled.

Co-op is using the 100% recycled bottles in 1 L Carbonated Water, 12 x 500 mL, 24 x 500 mL and 12 x 710 mL cases.

Sustainable Seafood

Co-op is committed to Sustainable Seafood. Sustainable seafood is fish or shellfish that is caught or farmed in ways that consider the long-term viability of harvested populations and the ocean's health and ecological integrity.

RAISING SALMON RIGHT

Something different is happening at British Columbia’s West Creek Aquaculture.

Having already produced a plant fertilizer made from the water where the fish live, West Creek Aquaculture has turned its attention to aquaponics — growing plants in the stuff.

This is, of course, an aside to their main gig, raising salmon and trout in confined facilities in Vancouver’s lower mainland. What’s exceptional is that West Creek Aquaculture’s farm is many kilometres away from the ocean.

“Rather than trying to be a hyper, mega, global salmon producer, we produce what we can grow comfortably. The fish are healthy and the product is great,” said West Creek Aquaculture owner Don Read.

TIDES CHANGING IN FISH FARMING

If you’ve visited a Co-op Food Store, there’s a good chance you’ll see fish from West Creek Aquaculture. It didn’t end up there by accident. With shoppers showing growing concern about the environmental impact of fisheries — which commonly farm Atlantic salmon in the ocean along the West Coast — a demand developed for more sustainable alternatives. West Creek Aquaculture responded by developing the country’s first salmon raised on land.

“We didn’t want to do Atlantic salmon. We felt that we are in the Pacific and in Western Canada. It just didn’t make sense to us,” said Read. “We are the only people in Canada that are producing Coho salmon on land for consumers.”

Grown in fresh water tanks, without antibiotics or growth hormones, West Creek Aquaculture’s farm eliminates the concerns raised about open ocean salmon farming. The fish can’t escape, possibly harming wild populations, and no waste is introduced into the ocean.

Kurtis Hayne from SeaChoice, a collection of four conservation organizations that helps shoppers identify sustainable seafood through a rating and labelling system, believes there are still misconceptions about sustainable seafood.

“One of the big connections a lot of people make is that farmed seafood is unsustainable, which is not the case,” said Hayne. “We have a lot of very good examples of very sustainable farmed seafood.”

SHOPPING SUSTAINABLE

West Creek Aquaculture’s forward approach to raising sustainable fish has been noticed. West Creek Pacific Coho salmon are recognized by Ocean Wise and SeaChoice as a best choice for sustainably produced seafood.

“It’s an exciting time to see that the consumer demand has helped to create a market for these innovative solutions that are addressing these big problems,” said Lana Gunnlaugson of SeaChoice.

SeaChoice ranks and recommends products based on how they are farmed, giving higher rankings for suppliers that factor in the long-term viability of the harvested populations and the ocean’s health. Seafood and fisheries can be given a poor ranking for overusing chemicals and antibiotics, destroying habitat, releasing waste into the environment and extensively using wild fish for feed.

Co-op has used the SeaChoice ranking and labelling system through its Reel in the Solution program since 2012. Since partnering with SeaChoice, Co-op has stopped selling fresh and frozen blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, barramundi, Atlantic cod, Chilean sea bass and other seafood that received the lowest ranking.

Last year, over two thirds of fresh and frozen seafood products sold at Co-op Food Stores carried a positive ranking. With the introduction of new Selva shrimp and Coho salmon products, shoppers have more sustainable seafood options.

“There’s not really any golden rule for sustainable seafood, whether it’s imported or local, wild or farmed. All have sustainable options,” said Hayne.
