Help us Grow!
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. In 2013 we:
- Grew over 5,500 lbs of fresh vegetables for our social service partners**
- Cultivated just under 1 acre of urban land
- Engaged over 700 volunteers
- Taught 600 elementary school students each month
- Fed fresh snacks to 130 children in NSNH childcare centres and taught them to grow their own
- Brought over 2000 people into our farms and gardens for educational experiences
** We work with amazing partners that get our fresh produce to those that need it most in our community. We work with the Harvest Project, Sage Women’s Safe House, the Food Bank at North Shore Neighbourhood House, and the Lookout.
Consider making a one-time or monthly donation to help the Edible Garden Project realize these dreams. 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 food growing skills, and engage new people in the local food movement.
All donors will receive a charitable tax receipt from the North Shore Neighbourhood House.
