The Generator turns 10!

It’s officially 10 years in the books for The Generator! On March 28, 2024 we marked our 10 year anniversary, and celebrated with a tea party in the Happiness Loft at Planted in Hamilton on Locke Street.

The Generator 10th Birthday Tea Party in the Happiness Loft at Planted in Hamilton.


The party felt like a culmination of all the support and the friendships made over the past decade. We love telling the stories of businesses and organizations on social media. In doing this over the past 10 years, we’ve had the privilege of meeting and working with so many incredible people in the community.

The occasion was marked with the collaboration on a new loose leaf tea blend with fellow 10-year alumnus Katie Cyr of Monarch Tea Co. Katie created The Generator’s Celebration Chai with notes of cinnamon and a bit of spice from white and black pepper, and packets of the tea were given to guests as party favours.

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate, sent congratulatory messages, shared our posts, and encouraged us along the way.

Cheers to the next 10 years!
