Darcy Hibberd’s worst moment entailed finding 22-year-old son Adam Hryhorchuk dead from a recreational drug’s unknown ingredients. His former West Point Grey Academy headmaster, Stephen Anthony, reportedly recalled Adam being “not the kind of kid you put a plaque about on the wall. He was all about people connecting.” Noting that his death had spurred informal student gatherings, Anthony suggested that an apple bowl might draw in others.

Earth Day Parade
Adam’s Apples was invited to the Earth Day parade by leadership students at Windermere Secondary School. At this event, we had the opportunity to enlighten others on the importance of connecting. Many community members shared their stories of bullying, violence and abuse in their younger years and voiced their appreciation for our Apple Program. Not only do we encourage youth to connect, we do so in an environmentally friendly way by encouraging youth to share an apple that can be decomposed.
