Did you know that WNC has its very own community food gardens? Everyone is welcome to participate and there is no cost. Produce is used for healthy snacks/meals in our community programs and shared with community members. Don’t know how to garden? No worries – we offer weekly organic gardening workshops during the growing season (Spring/Summer/Fall) to show how easy it is to be an urban gardener!

Special thanks to our hardworking 2016 Corporate Employee Volunteers: Starbucks Canada, TELUS Canada, Corby Spirit & Wine and Hilton Hotels. We greatly appreciate the past financial support provided by the 1% Seeds of Change grant program, presented by Evergreen.
