The Edible Garden Project’s biggest year of growth ever is coming to a close. Nestled snug for winter, visions of garden beds dance in our heads. We’re going to keep saying it because it is so true, but we couldn’t have done this year without you.
You know how exciting our collective work is, how much we’ve accomplished, and how much there is still to move ahead.
We want Loutet Farm to flourish, our EGP Sharing Gardens to feed those in need and foster food growing skills in our community, our municipal policy work to take root, every kid on the north shore to exclaim that kale chips are their favourite snack, and for unlikely spaces to become alive with fresh vegetables and connections.
Growing Gardens, Growing Community
We’re going to ask you to go above and beyond what you already contribute to the Edible Garden Project, and consider making a one-time or monthly donation. Your contribution will go straight to the core of our work to build more gardens, provide the tools and resources that we need to teach more people important food growing skills, and engage new people in the local food movement.
Our goal is to sign up 100 people for monthly donations of $5 (just $60 for the year). That would mean a whopping $500 coming into the EGP each month that we can use to:
- build garden infrastructure – think worm composters, native bee boxes, and educational signage
- plant and design two incredible food forests – featuring perennial edible plants, berries, and fruit trees
- teach kids how to grow food and eat healthy snacks!
- get seed, seedlings, and gardening workshops to the people in our community that need them most
- grow the network, spread the word, and get all you amazing people together to celebrate
All our Monthly Donors will recieve invitations to special events, a sneak peek and advance registration for GardenSmart workshops and EGP training sessions, and a quarterly update on how your contribution has made a difference in our community.
All donors will receive a charitable tax receipt from the North Shore Neighbourhood House – please make sure that you indicate “Edible Garden Project” in the Fund Designation box. Cheques should be made payable to the North Shore Neighbourhood House
Pass this along to friends and family – we need everyone on board!
With your support we can sprout a food revolution,
Heather & Emily
