Eat your Garden
I just got this email from a neighborhood mailing list:
How many of you are growing some food in your backyard? Do you have some
left-overs to share?
The City of Vancouver is recruiting home gardeners to contribute surplus
veggies and fruit to the "Grow-A-Row, Share-A-Row" program. By registering
with the program and donating your surplus to one of the west-side sites
- show community spirit
- help build food security in our city
- help the City meet the "2010 challenge"
The 2010 Challenge was issued by Council in May 2006. The objective is to
have 2,010 new "community shared" garden plots in the city by the time of
the Winter Olympics. The city is still only about half-way there.
