Growing for Our Good

Growing for Our Good

Sustainable Urban Gardening

Join your community in helping to grow organic food for local food banks and Ecosource’s social enterprise!

The Growing for Our Good program will build your skills in organic and sustainable urban food production through hands-on education at the Iceland Teaching Garden. There will be space to learn, share knowledge, and have fun! Volunteers are welcome to attend one or multiple sessions of Growing for Our Good. Each session will focus on different sustainable cultivation techniques, soil building strategies, and food system issues.

This program is FREE and open to all in our community. Refreshments will be provided. Adults, youth, children and families are welcome to attend. Participants aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a great opportunity to complete high school volunteer hours! All participants must bring a signed and completed volunteer form to their first session.

Beginning on May 30, 2017 through to October 3, 2017, Growing for Our Good will be held every Tuesday from 3PM to 6PM. Rain or shine, we hope to see you there!
