One of the biggest ways in which people connect with the environment is through food. Unfortunately, many of our current systems leave people without secure access to food that is both healthy and affordable. Greenways is working in collaboration with local organizations to increase food security for residents of the Strathcona Regional District.
Together with the garden’s committee, we are taking care of administrative activities for the Laughing Willow Community Garden. Greenways continuously works on establishing more community gardens of this kind. If you want to grow your own food and are interested in being added to the waitlist for the community garden please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are many more ways to get involved with food security in the region.
Our recent work: A third brand new community garden is in the making – read more. Greenways is currently running a fundraising campaign to create the financial base for the necessary purchases to actually “grow” the Charstate Community Garden. Donors will help us buy lumber for the garden beds, soil, a garden shed and materials for a watering system. Besides that we are currently putting out our feelers to promoting fresh, direct, wild and local seafood sales from “boat to table”. Our first initiative was a BOAT TO TABLE workshop for commercial fishermen which we ran on April 25, 2018.
