How people get their food matters. Food distribution systems that involve communities and help to create neighbourhood leaders have a great potential to enhance individual and community empowerment. Because of its material, cultural and social importance, food is special in its power to mobilize people to action.
There are lots of reasons to get involved in community-based food projects: for example, you can order the Good Food Box to save money, save time, meet your neighbours, support local farmers and encourage yourself to eat more fresh vegetables and fruit. Or you might want to attend one of our upcoming events, visit FoodShare on a tour, volunteer, or participate in a local community garden.
Orlando Lopez and Liz Kirk will be teaching the techniques of seed starting - you will learn essential techniques for growing strong seedlings, make your own biodegradable, ready to plant seed starter pots, take home a seed tray with potted seeds and seedlings. You will also receive vegetable seeds that you could plant in your garden.More Details »
